The objective of the Ashford Independents is to offer Ashford Borough residents independent representation on the Borough Council. Ashford Independents believe there is no place for National Party Politics in Local Government. While observing the Borough Constitution, members’ first responsibility is to the residents of their Ward and not to a distant National Party. There is no Whip, but members 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. We may also from time to time put forward candidates for the County Council to help our work in the Borough.
