Demolition of Aylesford Newsprint plant can now begin...



WORK on dismantling iconic structures at Aylesford Newsprint can now begin – two  years after the shock closure of the factory.

Administrators have been given permission by Tonbridge and Malling Council to demolish the buildings which have dominated the Kent landscape around Aylesford and Larkfield for decades.

Conditions have been imposed including limiting hours of work and to provide historical records of the existing buildings, as well as to protect trees and footpaths.

The 100-acre site, on the New Hythe Business Park, closed suddenly in March 2015 with the loss of 230 jobs and is set to be redeveloped with new homes and business premises.
