    According to a report on Kent Online, Central Ashford Community Forum is calling on Kent County Council to lower the speed limit in the town centre.
    As a number of people have stated, much of the time it is difficult to exceed 20mph. However, simply applying a 20mph zone is unlikely to achieve much at all. Whereas if the final section of the ring road from New Street to Somerset Road was to be made a shared space, as was always envisaged as far back as 2006,  https://democracy.kent.gov.uk/Data/Highways%20Advisory%20Board/20060711/Agenda/jul06-item4.pdf then perhaps the town centre would be enhanced and safer for pedestrians.
