Stonecastle Quarry map
Friday 8 February 3-5pm ~ Mission Hall, Golden Green. Please attend this meeting with our MP Tom Tugendhat to discuss the concerns we have regarding the latest quarry proposals and how these will affect our community in the future. Resident Alan Chilvers writes:
The proposed extension to Stonecastle Farm Quarry and a new quarry at neighbouring Moat Farm will affect nearly 200 acres of some of Kent’s finest Green Belt land, extending from Hartlake Bridge, Oak Weir, Sherenden Lane, all the way to Five Oak Green and Whetsted, Paddock Wood. We will be surrounded by quarries that will affect us all: a substantial increase in HGV traffic, dust, noise, air and light pollution, loss of wildlife, further flood risk, loss of public footpaths and affecting property values within the area. It really is important that our community responds to this public consultation with robust objections by midnight on Fri 8 March. You can find the consultation documents and the official forms here (scroll to the bottom of the web page to see five links that have details of the consultation and the representations forms). I know that KCC prefer people to use these online forms but clearly this is not practical for everyone, and during last year’s initial consultation, KCC accepted responses sent directly to mwlp@kent.gov.uk or posted to Minerals and Waste Planning Policy, 1st Floor, Invicta House, Maidstone ME14 1XX. Come to the meeting with Tom Tugendhat on 8 Feb 3-5pm in the Mission Hall to find out more and to get an update.
