The main thesis of this draft plan is to increase the provision of housing and does not consider the effect that the developments in housing will have on such other aspects as highways, health and education

Appendix 1 Provision and Delivery of County Council Community Services - KCC is not currently in a position to provide a full assessment as to the impact of the housing sites identified in Appendix 1 on KCC Service provision. Further work is being carried out grouping these sites together so that the impacts across specific areas can be assessed. In this respect that areas where development impact is expected to have the biggest effect are: − Broke Hill Golf Club − Edenbridge − Farningham (Pedh

The draft local plan should be clearer. What does the proposed additional 13,960 "units" mean in terms of population growth? Another 30,000 to 50,000 residents in the district? There is nothing even remotely sustainable about such a rapid and large increase in population. It appears that there is currently no infrastructure development plan (IDP), merely a policy and lots of platitudes in chapter 4 of the draft local plan about how SDC will work with various other bodies to improve infrastructur

I am overwhelmed by the length and detail of your draft local plan for the Sevenoaks area for the years 2019-2035. I therefore do not feel I am in a position to make comments on every proposed development area. Clearly those directly affected by the proposed development sites will be raising concerns about these and how they will have an impact on their immediate environment. In my case, I wish to make general comments, as a resident of the Sevenoaks District, relating to my alarm about the ge

I am not clear that the plan has fully explored the potential for building houses on vacant, hard to sell or lease sites in commercial zones which could be redesignated for housing development. For example, I can see no hard and up to date data to show that the industrial estates in Edenbridge are fully occupied most of the time. I am also unclear whether the amount of High Street space where a shop front is deemed necessary, e.g. in Edenbridge, is realistic when even High Streets in cities are

I notice that many of the proposed sites would result in the loss of other amenities as well as employment opportunities, leisure and health care, with in most cases the throw away line that such uses must be replaced elsewhere but with no clear indication where and how all of these loses will be met. Additionally, whilst relying on Kent Highways to advise on the traffic implications of the developments, which is only right and proper, I think some thought should have been given by the Council n

In general CPRE Kent supports a development strategy which meets the following criteria: * It prioritises the redevelopment of appropriate, sustainably located previously developed land. It does not support development on locally defined brownfield land in unsustainable locations. * It does not lead to the loss of best and most versatile agricultural land, Green Belt, AONBs and other designations. * It focuses growth at existing settlements and maximises supply through increased densities at

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.

Green belt land is green belt for a reason - all other brown belt land options should be explored first before green belt land is pillaged

The Draft Plan makes no mention of the 468 long term empty properties in the SDC reported to the Development Control Committee 28/03/2018. This equates to more than half the proposed development on Green Fields in Hartley (MX 52 and 53 for 800 homes) which if action was taken to occupy some of the empty homes it would reduce the number in that proposal. In my view there should at least be a positive statement in the plan to lobby Government to legislate if necessary to occupy some if not all of
