Aylesford Parish Council

Who we are
Aylesford is a large parish in the Kent M2/M20 corridor. It includes Aylesford, Eccles, Blue Bell Hill Village, parts of Walderslade, Kits Coty and Pratling Street.
Our responsibilities include: promoting the interests of the parish at all levels; providing and promoting recreational facilities; grant aid to village halls and voluntary organisations; commenting on planning policies and applications.
Whilst Parish Council policy is increasingly focused on facilitating services, some services are provided directly by the Council. These include: some 200 street lights; two car parks; Aylesford Cemetery; allotments at Aylesford and Eccles; and recreation grounds with their play equipment. 
On Saturday 28 April vigilant staff were able to prevent an unauthorised encampment on the Ferryfield. However as part of this attempted unauthorised encampment the security locks on all of the gates on the Ferryfield were broken and therefore to secure the site unwelcome intrusion it has been necessary to place the concrete blocks in front of the gates. This will be a short term temporary measure until new locks can be obtained and repairs carried out.
Temporary Road Closure: We have had notification of planned works from Open Reach B.T that it will be necessary to close Aylesford High Street from 30 June to 3 July. The road will be closed one way going into the High Street towards Bull Lane.
Temporary Road Closure: From 16 June 2018 Chatham Road, Aylesford & Sandling will be closed for up to 3 weekends. The road will be closed between A229 Bluebell Hill and Tollgate Way. The alternative route is via Bluebell Hill, Chatham Road, Sandling Lane, Boarley Lane and Tyland Lane and vice versa. The closure is to enable cycle, pedestrian and equestrian route improvements to be carried out by KCC Highways.
