DIARY: Council man can’t stop courting controversy

It seems the controversy and glamour of property PR has gotten too much for one Adrian Westwood, who has just rejoined Ashford Borough Council.

It seems the controversy and glamour of property PR has gotten too

much for one Adrian Westwood, who has just rejoined Ashford Borough

Council.



He originally left Ashford in January last year for Hastings Borough

Council. During his time there he dealt with the controversy over the

Sion Jenkins murder trial.



No doubt seeking a quieter life, he left Hastings and turned to the

private sector, becoming the Kent region PR adviser to BAA

McArthurGlen.



Unfortunately, it was at the time the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet -

designed by Lord Rogers - was launched. It was dubbed the ’whoopee tent’

by the Mirror, after claims that it made some rather dubious noises when

the wind blew.



Westwood has now found himself back at Ashford, but he’s not looking for

a quiet life. ’I have returned just as the Government revealed its

Regional Planning Guidance which proposes that Ashford should become the

next Milton Keynes,’ says ’Westwood. The challenge,’ he adds, ’is

tough.’
