I am very concerned about the proposed land being used for additional housing when there is no suitable infrastructure to deal with the increased amount of traffic.

Draft Local Plan July 2018 Executive Summary 8. Clean air, healthy living and preparing for a changing climate

Putting more families into a small area would result in even more overcrowding of key services. Where the current infrastructure is so poor to facilitate the current population I do not see how this can be improved when you would be relying on narrow barely two lane roads.

To be proposing to use green belt land it will overcrowd the local villages with people and traffic which will have a detrimental effect on local wildlife and the local area as a place of outstanding natural beauty.

Improvement of Leisure facilities is always an important area of concern but not if the numbers of people are to be increased to such an extent that this would cancel out any improvements.

Draft Local Plan July 2018 Sevenoaks Vision 2015-2035 and Objectives of the Local Plan

I believe that empty promises are being made about the local plan. The practical implications of more people brings overcrowding and most certainly much higher numbers if traffic including lorries and service goods and the infrastructure already cannot facilitate the current level of occupants in the community.

Draft Local Plan July 2018 Executive Summary 4. Improving Health, Schools and Transport

  • Comment ID: DLPP468
  • Status: Accepted
Health facilities, schools and transport links are already over stretched with the number of people living in the immediate area. The proposed changes to add yet more people would only exacerbate the current problems.

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

  • Comment ID: DLPP475
  • Status: Accepted
I am very concerned about the lack of infrastructure for the current population of Hartley and the surrounding villages. More houses will only exacerbate the current problem. The proposal of new roads and use of current roads is rather naive considering the lack of space to physically do this. When suggestions sound reasonable they may not actually be practical and I think that is the case with these proposals.

Too many houses in a small village community with no decent infrastructure is likely to cause greater congestion.
