Question by George Koowaree to David Brazier, Cabinet Member for Environment & Transport

May 17, 2014 9:15 AM

Will the Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport give an explanation as to why the Drover roundabout in Ashford has been left to turn into a meadow, is it to make the cow sculptures feel at home?

Mr Chairman, it is a disgrace that first impression for people coming into Ashford is to see this eyesore.


The new Drovers Roundabout and M20 J9 scheme opened in 2011. I agree with Mr Koowaree that the Drovers Roundabout is an important gateway to Ashford and particularly with the historic 'Drover and his cows' feature. I will arrange for the island grass to be cut and the highways service will continue to work with the Borough Council to ensure that the required level of routine maintenance is undertaken.
