Ashford Borough Council is a local authority which provides services to residents in Ashford, Tenterden and a large network of surrounding villages.
Our services include keeping the streets clean and collecting rubbish, renting out social housing (council houses and flats), running cemeteries and providing play areas. Council tax and housing benefits, leisure facilities, and tourism are also handled by the council. We deal with planning applications for everything from a conservatory to major developments and if you are buying a home in the borough we can provide you with a comprehensive land search service. We issue licenses for taxis and licensed premises, look after parks and open spaces, and parking around the borough.
