As you may be aware, West Malling Parish Council and East Malling and Larkfield Parish Council have jointly launched a petition to extend the Green Belt to the East. The purpose is to press TMBC to include this proposal in the Draft Local Plan now in preparation.
The extension would:
- Protect countryside which currently separates Kings Hill from our communities and the villages of Wateringbury, Offham and Leybourne in particular.
- Prevent these communities merging into a single continuous suburban sprawl and
- Safeguard the historic communities of East and West Malling as provided in NPPF.
We are supported by the Broadwater Action Group.
