Within the Parish of Fawkham there is only one, very small, site with a proposed Open Space Designation in the new plan Appendix: 2060 St Mary's Church Cemetery. This seems strange as there are a number of Open Spaces within this rural hamlet that currently exist and should, in my view, be included. These are: 1. Church Down Wood, a Local Wildlife Site (SE02) 2. The meadow next to St Mary's Church, Fawkham, which is publicly accessible, and used daily by dog walkers, children playing and as th

Westerham Town Council wishes to make the following comments on the above draft policy: * Crockham Hill War Memorial Playing Field Is missing from the list of 'Outdoor Sports Facilities'. Although the playground situated in the corner of the playing field is listed (site 597) the much larger playing field, widely used for football, cricket, tennis and other recreational purposes, is missing. * Amenity greenspace in Westerham Whilst sites 576, 581, 582 and 584 refer to amenity greenspaces in

Policy 19 Sport and Leisure: The omission of swimming pools from the list of existing provision is surprising and must be put right. Golf courses: The policy is to retain them but as most are not publicly owned, the policy lacks the means to achieve it. We are in a time when areas of greenfield land, including golf courses, represent enormous development value if planning 'obstacles' can be overcome. We think it is essential to protect these facilities from speculative proposals by requiring vi

Policy No. 19 I support this policy in general, particularly the proposal to improve the PROW network and cycling routes, but expect these to be disability friendly. However, as in my comment on Policy No. 18, this is an unrealistic expectation unless appropriate funding is identified, both for capital projects and revenue streams for the maintenance of all facilities.

There are other areas of woodland in Badgers Mount adjacent to the areas shown in Appendix 8 which are just as open and accessible but not identified, including Coneyearth Wood, Goss Bushes and Broomhatch northwest of the marked area of Saunders Spring Wood to the M25 spur road and between the A224 and Chelsfield Lane, and Jenkins Neck Wood between Badgers Road and Shacklands Road immediately to the west of the M25.

We note the draft policy sets out new housing developments must apply, as a minimum, the Fields in Trust (FiT) requirements for inclusion of equipped play space. We consider it is also appropriate that the draft policy allows for departure from the FiT requirements where it has been clearly demonstrated that it is not feasible or viable to deliver and for alternative lower provision to be agreed with the Council on a site by site basis

Please Consider Equestrians! Many people chose horse riding as their recreation and exercise - the physical and psychological benefits have been assessed by a joint project between British Horse Society and Brighton University (see below) . The equestrian industry is worth over £4 billion across the country - including indirect benefits to many farmers who supply feed and forage (see below). It is an activity that can be done by an ageing population - those with the ability to ride but having

Policy 19 - Open Space, Sport and Leisure At the start of the second para, we suggest omitting the words "We will support" and adding "will be encouraged" at the end of the first sentence. In the section headed "Open space and recreation" amend the opening sentence of the third paragraph to read "Proposals to increase the number of, and/or improve the quality of" In the section headed "Children and Young People Play Space" amend the first sentence to read: "Development will be expected to pro

I am confused about the selection of sites in Appendix 8. I note amenity verges / patches of land are included in Springcroft but not similar ones in Manor Drive, Round Ash Way, The Hawthorns, Wellfield, Stack Lane, Billings Hill Shaw, Bramblefield Estate, Caxton Close and Gorse Way. Why is the Manor Field Sports Ground included but not the Manor Road facility near Longfield Hill, also in Hartley? I note you have included (1036) land between Hartley and Fawkham, for which there is no public acc
