Main Changes 10, 11 and 12 are not soundly based in terms of being effective or consistent with national sustainable development objectives.

The change is increasing the density of housing and this is not acceptable in rural communities, despite national policies and surveys on predictions for housing requirements. These kinds of surveys are often inaccurate.

Policy S5 – Land South of Pound Lane (MC12) This site is adjacent to the Whitewater Dyke, a main river. Please note that any development at this site must respect the river corridor through provision of a suitable buffer zone of at least 8m from the top of the river banks. Rivers form an important wildlife corridors and ecological networks which Section 117 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) specifies need to be preserved and restored.

Section 4.62 Acknowledges the need for 'visual separation' for the village of Kingsnorth and a 'barrier' for the small cluster of homes on Pound Lane but there is no supporting evidence of this, or reassurance for other residents close by in the Washford Farm and Knights Park area.

There is no substitution for this. Mentio

I look at this development in conjunction with Chilmington Green site and MC11. Too much development will totally change the whole character of this area which was beautiful farmland. This is a natural buffer between Shadoxhurst, Great Chart, Mersham and Hamstreet. To continue to building will join Ashford with the villages and lose the nature ambience of a village setting. The infastructure will not be able to sustain the amount of vehicles proposed when looking at this developments with others
