Main Changes to Local Plan 2030 Policy S55 - Charing, Land adjacent to Poppyfields (MC98) Content

Dear Sir I have just recently heard of a further building proposal being considered outside the [development] completed recently, of 180 houses on the outskirts of Charing. 1. This I consider is beyond the boundary line of Charing and would destroy the approach which we now experience as we now come over the hill nearing first the church tower and then the lovely rural aspect which greets us now on entering Charing which would be a great pity. 2. This particular area being considered is full

7.12 Policy S55- Charing, Land Adjacent to Poppyfields (MC98) 7.12.1 Gladman support the allocation of the site in Charing for residential development. Charing is a sustainable location for development with all major services and frequent bus and rail connections to key locations. Gladman control a large portion of the allocation and can confirm it is considered to be developable within the plan period. 7.12.2 The only change needed to the policy relates to part e) of Policy S55 which notes th

I am writing on behalf of myself and my husband. Regarding the massive development planned for Charing which, of course, is totally out of scale compared to the size of the village and its amenities and therefore UNSOUND. The fact that nearly 200 properties are planned opposite and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with direct access on to the A20, on an extremely damp site, containing many natural habitats, would affect the surrounding water table as well as the supply of water to Charing.

I am writing to you to protest at the changes apparently made by Ashford Borough Council in respect to the draft Local Plan I am advised that the Council has identified a single site for 180 houses in addition to the 20 houses proposed in the vicinity of Charing Motors and object to its inclusion for the following reasons: Such overall development amounts to 2000 dwellings, the scale of which is similar to the recent Gladman application that was unanimously turned down by the council. As Argu

We are concerned that this policy will result in a further 180 houses in a village which will already be developed beyond its infrastructure model.

I am against the change to the draft local plan near the petrol station site. It is too large and all in one piece whereas the recent public consultation favoured several smaller sites that suited the needs of the village better. For example, a better development would be in the field near the skate board area because it would probably enable the main road to be made safer with traffic calming. Each of the smaller developers can be made to suit a local purpose. Also one large one would be out

We hope we are not too late to register our absolute objection to the proposed changes to Ashford Borough Council's draft Local Plan. The proposed site a Charing next to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is appalling. We are also given to understand that the fields in this proposed area show indications of Roman remains and have historical importance. That together with the impact this sort of development would have on the water environment within the fields makes it completely inappropriate

I understand that Ashford Borough Council has recently proposed a change to the draft local plan addition permission for a further for some 180 more houses (in addition to the 20 planned for the petrol station site). I believe that such a major build on this site would be far from desirable for various reasons: * Though the need for further housing is recognised – the inclusion of this site is a step to far in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which I feel has already faced its responsib

We strongly feel that this development is quite out of proportion for Charing village. It is completely contrary to the statement on Charing in the Local Plan, which states that there could be "minor residential and infilling of a scale that can easily be integrated into the existing settlement". Such a development would ride roughshod over the wishes of Charing residents as expressed in the Neighbourhood Plan questionnaire. Taken in context with other development already approved, this developm

When Charing held the first meeting to launch the Neighbourhood Plan there was a lot of sceptics in the audience about the real plan that Ashford Borough Council had, and it appears this is now true. First we had a proposal for 240 houses adjacent to Pluckley Road, and now the latest plan for a further 180 houses. This is in addition to the already growing village with the small developments around the village; which is precisely what the Village accept and approve, based on the Neighbourhood Pl
