* NHS Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley Clinical Commissioning Group (DGS CCG) does not support the principle of building on green belt land and does not support specifically the 'Exceptional Circumstances' developments within the DGS CCG area (North part of the Sevenoaks District Council area). The CCG has serious concerns regarding the significant increase in the proposed number of houses and the impact this will have on existing and future health and care services, which are already stretched b

We support SDC policy that building on undeveloped land in the Green Belt must only be considered as a last resort after all other options (brownfield and non Green Belt sites) have been exhausted. Change of use from employment to residential should only occur where a site is shown to be no longer viable for employment. The Government has said that 13,960 new homes are needed. Is this figure based on local need? Your own figure (page 11) says that the population is expected to grow by 20,000 (ON

I object because of the damage to the little village due to all the traffic that roads won't cope and bigger will destroy peoples property , that it is on green belt that has been protected . We are right next door to one big site and don't want people over looking us, as was one of the reasons we moved there in the first place. And all the lorries etc will destroy the roads and beautiful green belt Land.

As a family we object to the current plans at pedham place in Farningham and surrounding areas. We are massively concerned about the amount of pollution this will bring to an already very busy area. We already live in an area that cannot cope with the amount of traffic that comes from the area and M25 on busy days. Junction 3 at the M25 is already known for being one of the busiest junctions. This brings with it both noise and air pollution that will increase massively with the build of new hom

The Government targets are not absolute. Very disappointed in this "planning" process so far. All we have are sites up for offer by developers with no interest in the local community and what it needs. We also have seen no plans for infrastructure improvements which, if development is to go ahead, are sorely needed - roads are congested, schools are being closed, waiting times for a non urgent doctor's appointment range from 3-5 weeks. Increased density of housing is poorly defined - I suspect i

A target of 13,960 homes represents an increase of 29% on the 48,000 dwellings which currently exist within the district. Taking Sevenoaks town as an example, only two of the schools within the Sevenoaks academic catchment area were not oversubscribed in 2017 – one of those was in Edenbridge, some 10 miles away. Under current legislation, a Local Education Authority cannot build new schools; the provision of any new education facility relies on finding a suitable sponsor for either a free schoo

In my view greenbelt is sacrosanct and I don't agree with Cllr Piper's comment that this is "a once in a generation opportunity to improve our local infrastructure and community facilities" any more than I would regard selling one of my kidneys as a once in a lifetime opportunity to fund a new conservatory. We are fortunate to live within striking distance of London, which has the most populous metropolitan area in the EU, but far enough outside of it that we are surrounded by green open spaces

Sevenoaks & Swanley Liberal Democrats The main constraint on Sevenoaks District Council in its plan is the artificial government target for housing numbers. Changes in the economic and social pressures on different communities present real risks to the plan. The role of international workers in the London economy which Sevenoaks serves, and in local industry and services, is high and the impact of leaving the EU will be significant. It is therefore vital that the targets are reviewed early in t

I am whole heartedly opposed to this application. There is no infrastructure for more housing and, until there is, we shouldn't even be contemplating this. Already Darenth Valley Hospital is finding it hard to cope with the patients it has, this information from a nurse working there and feeling very despondent because nurses don't feel they are doing their job properly. If we allow developers, who couldn't care less for our welfare only their pockets, to start building on the brown belt, it wil

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.
