Welcome to the Rolvenden Parish Council Website .




A recent safety inspection has determined that the play area IS unsafe and should be closed.

An application was made to Ashford Borough Council in February to release funds to refurbish the play area and this was sanctioned, subject to a legal agreement between Rolvenden Parish Council and Ashford Borough Council. The legal agreement has yet to be received from ABC and until it is completed the funds will not be released to enable us to place an order with the play equipment company.

The play area will be padlocked shut until further notice – please do not allow children to enter.
