Chance to form new cross-border residents group for Allington and Aylesford

By Alan Smith

Moves are a foot to form a new residents association to tackle problems associated with Maidstone and Malling’s housing expansion.

There will be an inaugural meeting for residents from the Elysian Fields estate and Hambling Place to be held at the ACA building on Castle Road, tomorrow (Friday) night.

Both areas are on the border between the Allington Ward of Maidstone Borough Council, and the South Aylesford Ward of Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council.

The meeting will discuss the problems of sewage leakage in Hambling Place and the ability of the Allington pumping station to cope with the demands on the system, which is under increasing pressure from new housing developments in the area.

A representative from Southern Water will attend.

Other items on the agenda include a discussion of Maidstone‘s Local Plan, now in its final stages, and Tonbridge and Malling’s draft Local Plan, as well as whether a campaign should be launched to establish 20mph speed limits in the area and an HGV ban from residential roads such as Beaver Road, Juniper Close, and Corben Close.

The meeting is seeking to appoint a chairman, secretary, treasurer and up to 12 committee members for a new association.
