The new, larger Ashford International Truck stop, will provide secure daytime and overnight parking for 600 HGVs, when completed.

During the construction programme the existing truck stop will remain operational, helping minimise unlawful HGV parking in and around Ashford.

45 acres of Waterbrook will be developed for 70,000sq ft of new commercial space, alongside the existing Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency offices and planned Jaguar Land Rover dealership. When fully developed the commercial premises will provide employment for around 950 people.

To meet Ashford’s growing population, Waterbrook will include 400 new homes, which will be separated from the commercial property by a 13 acre linear park incorporating a small natural lake. A further 25 acres will be left undeveloped and schemes put in place to enhance the local ecology.

Recognising the need for local retail space, Ashford Borough Council has approved plans to develop a food store, as well as drive-through restaurants, plus a petrol filling station.

The proposed retail development will be convenient for residents and businesses at Waterbrook and nearby Finberry residents, providing day-to-day retailing, with a new link road and bridge over the River Stour.
