We put people first. We will speak up to say what you think. We listen, we challenge and we hope to inspire.
The Ashford Independents offer Ashford residents Borough Council independent representation. We believe that National Party politics has no place in Local Government. While observing the Borough Constitution, our members’ first responsibility is to the residents of their Ward and not to a distant National Party. There is no Party Whip, but members of the Ashford Independents work together to support each other in promoting a local Government that serves local people.
We have registered as a Political Party to ensure a level playing field at the time of Borough Elections. As a registered group our elected members also qualify for Ashford Borough Council Committee and Working Group places – ensuring that your voice is carried to the heart of the Council decision-making processes.
We may also from time to time put forward candidates for the County Council to help our work in the Borough.
