Flygrazers horses sheepfold lane junction A2070/A2042, Ashford Kent

The request is waiting for clarification. If you are Carrie may, please sign in to send a follow up message.

Dear Kent County Council,

Please can you tell me your intentions regarding three adult ponies and one four month old foal that have been abandoned on your land? They have been there nearly four years. Sadly another foal is due imminently.
This land floods very deeply in winter and is already begining to hold water. These animals need removing before winter sets in. Only afew locals feed and water when they can but stopping there is hugely dangerous. PLEASE REMOVE THEM or start supplying hay and clean water as is the law.
There is also another herd in the paddock next to it,both paddock's are situated in the middle of the bypass. I understand you have given permission and take a rent for allowing the owner to use this plot but who is responsible for the fencing? These horses have begun to escape into the bypass recently,If a car hits them it will be carnage and definitely result in the death of any horse but also serious injury or death to road users who may hit them. Is there anyway you can errect stronger solid fencing and gate posts to prevent further escape if you are allowing horses to graze there.

Yours faithfully,
Karan may

Kent County Council
