From spring 2019 Kennington will have a community council to represent local residents. Similar to parish councils elsewhere the community council will get involved in local issues and represent the best interests of residents.
Ashford Borough Council is looking for volunteers who can help to set up the community council. The first election to this new body will be held in May 2019 but there is plenty of work to do before then, especially from now until October.
Ashford Borough Council is assembling a group known as a shadow council who can inform the establishment of the community council. The group will include local borough councillors, representatives from existing community forums as well as local residents keen to take part. The community council for Kennington will be called Kennington Parish Council. More details can be found at the following web page:
