This allocated site is crossed by a number of Public Rights of Way used regularly for recreational exercise. This policy recognises the importance of these routes and the Service supports the inclusion of paragraphs 4.229 and 4.23 in respect of a "Parkland" feel.

Policy S20 allocates up to 300 dwellings on the site known as 'Eureka Park'. In line with paragraph 162 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG), we have undertaken an assessment of our infrastructure, including its ability to meet the forecast demand for the proposed development. That assessment reveals that: (i) additional local sewerage infrastructure would be required to accommodate the proposed development (involving making a co

Waterbodies to the centre of the site should be sensitively treated in terms of site layout, forming a key part of the landscape strategy. Further, the screen of proposed trees to the north west of the site should be retained and enhanced as part of an ecological network through the site. It is agreed that the site should be accessed from Trinity Road. The shops at Eureka Place can be accessed from Trinity Road too. There needs to be as defensible landscaped boundary to the golf course to ensur

Policy S20 Eureka Park Kent Wildlife Trust objects to the proposed allocation at Eureka Park for mixed commercial and residential use. We do not support the residential use of this site. This relates mainly to increasing recreational pressure upon The Warren Local Wildlife Site (AS25) and this is because the allocation now includes housing as well as employment purposes. We would like to see inclusion in this policy the need to prevent this; and where this is not possible to implement mitigatio

POLICY S20 – EUREKA PARK Policy S20 proposes the Eureka Park site is allocated as a mixed use development for a mix of commercial (around 20ha) and up to 300 dwellings. The Policy states that the development shall provide "a proportionate financial contribution towards the repayments of the forward funding that delivered the M20 Junction 9 & Drovers roundabout improvements." To date neither the Local Plan nor its transport evidence base has confirmed that existing M20 Junction 9 can accommoda
