Dartford's Central Park to be enlarged

Dartford's Central Park is set to nearly double in size after the borough council secured a £4.1million deal to buy adjacent land from pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline. The local authority says that the Acacia House purchase, which will be completed on 30 June, will allow the park to be restored to its original Edwardian style. Central Park will grow from 11ha to 20ha and gain additional sport and recreation facilities. Plans for a road through the park are being contested by local Labour MP Howard Stoate, who is campaigning for a public inquiry.
