There should be a section in the executive summary on the effects the proposals will have on the parking and usage of cars and other vehicles in the district. Page 5 says the Government has instructed that Sevenoaks should build 14,000 homes Does this mean that there will be about 30,000 more cars in the district? Unfortunately, no evaluation seems to have been made of the impact of the additional use of cars and other vehicles for the planning period. This is a major omission Already numerous

I would like to see more detail on this. At the moment all we have are plans for new developments at a time when traffic congestion (M25 Jct 3 / Swanley) is a major problem, schools are being closed (shipping children the length of the District to get to school is hardly helping), WOLC is threatened with closure (to be replaced by a probably much smaller facility out of town), doctors surgeries are oversubscribed and waiting times for non-urgent appointments can range from 3-5 weeks.

Health, school and transport infrastructure facilities are already stretched to near breaking point. Wherever large developments are proposed, these facilities must be augmented to bring them up to modern standards eg larger GP surgeries which can take some of the load from hospitals; schools built locally so that children don't have to travel long distances. There is no mention of whether utilities - electricity, gas, water, drainage, broadband etc. can cope with the increased loads required by

I cannot understand why this plan says it will improve transport links? The large sites will increase congestion on the M25 up to the Dartford Crossing, most importantly dramatically reducing air-quality. As for the other developments around Hextable and Swanley Village, I don't believe anyone can have actually visited the area to appreciate the small roads and minimal school provision. This whole plan needs revisiting. Most importantly, it reads to me that the comments will be appraised by O

Sevenoaks Liberal Democrats Quality of Life Most of Sevenoaks District has an outstanding quality of residential environment. This is what has driven its growth and its character. Further growth must not undermine the quality of our communities which make them special. The impact of increasing, and speeding, traffic poses the biggest threat to quality of life for families living in our towns and villages. The plan must make clear how noise, pollution, congestion and danger which damages them

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.

Developments proposed for Swanley, will greatly increase pollution. Much of the town is already designated with dangerous levels of air pollution. There are no plans to improve Education facilities and where developers have proposed health provision these are included to boost the special circumstances bids of developers . No consultation have taken place with NHS. Our public transport service is underthreat with cuts in KCC subsidy for buses.
