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 Officers and then sent off to the government - will there not be the opportunity for residents to see the results of their input on the final plan?
