Draft Local Plan July 2018 A Balanced Strategy for Sustainable Growth in a Constrained District Finding Places for New Homes

I was invited to attend a developer/land owners forum convened by the council on 30th August. The council's approach to 'Exceptional Circumstances' was discussed and all 6 tables were invited to respond. All 6 tables and thus all attendees did not agree with the council's approach on the basis that it lacked transparency and would lead to Green Belt release in unsustainable locations at the expense of more sustainable locations immediately adjacent to existing towns and villages where existing

If any or all of these plans are to be implemented, an increase in population will be noticeabe. At the time of writing, there is no GP practice in Crockenhill and it is my view this is an essential requirement. The present GP practices in Swanley are already inadequate and the situation can only get worse. In my opinion and others I have spoken to, it is vital to rectify this situation and I request that this matter should receive urgent consideration.

I am pleased to see that sites HO120 and HO177 are not in the current draft plan. Both sites meet the criteria for well performing Green Belt. If any Green Belt is to be released it should only be where Exceptional Circumstances exist.

I fully endorse SDC's approach to development in the Green Belt. Exceptional Circumstances sites should only proceed if the infrastructure offered would benefit the current residents.

I support Edenbridge Town Council's response to the Local Plan and add my own emphasis below; * I do not support the development in the Green Belt at Land south west of Crouch House Road MX51, or Land west of Romani Way MX44 because I believe it will be detrimental to the character of Edenbridge. Additionally, I live on Hever Road and do not believe it could cope with additional traffic. Due to the nature of much of the housing – Victorian and without driveways – there is much on-street parking

I would like to question the premise that the Green Belt can be considered for development when local needs are to be met and when landowners and developers suggest so. My understanding of the role of the Green Belt stems from my teaching (at A level for many years in local schools) and my education (a Geography degree from Cambridge amongst other qualifications). Green belts/zones/sectors figure in regional planning not just in the UK but widely across the world. Unplanned urban sprawl benefi

I worry about the continual proposals for new houses to be built in Swanley. Because of the knock on effect of the problems everyday with the Dartford Crossing, Swanley is already often highly congested with traffic. It is very difficult to get a doctor's appointment and there are not enough school places as it is, Swanley cannot cope with increased population. Also rush hour trains into London are packed every day with commuters and can't take any more. We need to protect the countyside around

If further building and development is allowed on Fort Halstead land (to increase the approved quota), along with the proposed new developments of 600 units at Westerham and 800 at Broke Hill Golf Course when the area has already seen a large development completed at the Old Cold Store in Dunton Green, then I fail to see how SDC can meet policies 2, 4 and 8 in this draft local plan. Any further increase in housing within what is a small area, will surely impact upon the health and wellbeing of t

OTHER SITE Proposals Land to the south east of HO189 – the Town Council proposes that approaches be made to the land owner to the south east of site HO189 to request the land behind Railway Cottages, extending to the allotments, and not currently in the Plan, be included to provide a back entrance to the station. The logical inclusion of this site would have the benefit of achieving disabled access to Edenbridge Town Station, and should include additional parking and access to the platforms on

I am pleased and support the SDC assessment that sites HO177 and HO304 are unsuitable for development but question why site HO120 is not similarly classified as it is subject to most of the same constraints. The Arup review found all these sites to be strongly performing Green Belt and I support the assessment that there are no exceptional circumstances that could justify a revision of Green Belt boundaries in this area. Brittains Lane, which provides access to sites HO177 and HO120 is a singl
