Wye prepares to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice

Posted: Sat, 10 Nov 2018 01:00 by Parish Admin

The war memorial will be the focus of remembrance in Wye at 11.00 Sunday 11th November. This year, as Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday coincide, the ceremony with half muffled bells, the two minute silence and the laying of wreaths as an act of remembrance will take place 100 years to the minute after the Armistice. A new plaque will be dedicated to commemorate the sacrifice of past generations and to mark the centenary of the Armistice. A second plaque beside Churchfield Green already records its designation as a Centenary Field.

Wye Goods Yard appeal start date announced

Wye Goods Yard appeal start date announced

Posted: Fri, 09 Nov 2018 23:00 by Parish Admin

The planning application 17/1646/AS for 14 three storey dwellings on the former Wye Goods Yard site will be decided by an Inspector, not by Ashford Borough Council. The developer appealed on grounds on non-determination. The appeal process started 6th November and all those who have written to date will be notified by letter. Residents and other interested persons now have until 11th December to provide any new evidence, or to make additional comments. Over 60 Wye residents have objected and the Parish Council has written strong objections on a wide range of issues. The Inspector will read all these letters, so there is no need to repeat points made already. More »

The agreed Wye Neighbourhood Plan policy is to use this land as additional parking for the railway station, to relieve parking congestion, particularly along Bramble Lane, Bridge Street and Churchfield Way.

The Inspector will decide this appeal by written representations, so there will be no public hearing. The developer consulted Ashford Borough Council for pre-application advice in November 2016. » Less

High Street Wye closed for repairs

High Street Wye closed for repairs

Posted: Fri, 09 Nov 2018 10:00 by Parish Admin

Without warning KCC has issued a temporary road closure notice for a week to enable repairs to a dangerous inspection cover in the High Street Wye, opposite the former Wye College Porters Lodge. The drain cover worked loose again and the tarmac around the fitting was breaking up and sinking, creating a hazard, especially for cyclists. This is the third time in the past 26 months that this particular fitting has needed a similar repair. The contractors for South East Water closed the road between The Green and Golden Square on Friday. The road closure permit runs from the 9th to the 15th November. More »

Olantigh Road is also subject to roadworks. Delays are being caused by the digging of trial holes for services in connection with development at Wye School. The permit for these works will end Monday 12th November. KCC Highways plans to repair potholes in Harville Road at the entrance to Palmstead Nursery between 12th and 14th November. » Less
