Call centre will create 600 jobs

More than 600 jobs are expected to be created when a new call centre is constructed in Kent.

Private healthcare firm AXA PPP has had plans to build a 42,000 sq ft (3,901 sq ft) centre on land at Repton Park approved by Ashford Borough Council.

The development will include two three-storey buildings that will use solar power to generate hot water and use rainwater in its toilets.

The council said the jobs would be created at the former Templer Barracks.
