On the afternoon of 1 October, Bloomfields Directors, Gary Mickelborough and Thomas Ogden were guests of Ashford Borough Council (Simon Cole and Roland Mills) who explained the challenges and opportunities facing the Council and in particular the current status regarding Stodmarsh Water Neutrality. This was a most informative visit, which formed the second half of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) President’s visit of Kent and which ended in the Curious Brewery meeting some of Kent’s young planners.
