Keep New Ash GREEN

Help fight the Ash Place Farm development proposed by Berkeley Homes, the development for around 580 new homes (equivalent to seven new neighbourhoods in New Ash Green!)

This proposal if it goes through will take away out previous green belt, and turn the whole area into just another urban sprawl.  Our roads cannot cope now and they certainly won’t if this goes through.   The whole of New Ash Green is defined by a thick tree belt – come and see our aerial photos.  We need to preserve the setting and special character of New Ash Green.  The only way this can be done is to FIGHT THESE PROPOSALS.

Calling All Dog Owners

DOG OWNERS – PLEASE DISPOSE OF POO BAGS RESPONSIBLY

Over the winter months the number of used poo bags being discarded inappropriately (in hedgerows and trees, on verges, and throughout our woodlands) has increased dramatically.  A member the Woodlands Group recently removed over 200 from the badgers’ sett in Nine Horse Wood.  This is not acceptable.   If you are a dog owner, you are responsible for clearing up after your pet and putting the bagged poo into one of the many bins provided.  Most of us do this, but there is a small (but very significant) minority who don’t.  If you are one of those, your behaviour is giving all dog owners a bad name and is leading to unsightly contamination throughout the village.  Thankyou to all those who behave responsibly and who also find this disgusting habit intolerable.

Power cuts – Priority Support

Do you or someone you know need extra support during a power cut? Although power cuts don’t happen very often when they do they can be worrying. UK Power Networks is the electricity network and it provides a ‘Priority Services Register’ for people who might need extra help in a power cut. Older people, families with very young children, and people with specific medical conditions are among the many people who are eligible to register for free support. You can find more details and register by visiting ukpowernetworks.co.uk/prioritysupport or calling 0800 169 9970.
