KCC confirms that contributions will be required from this development to accommodate the additional educational need generated by the proposed development. Contributions towards the provision of County Council Services including facilities for delivering early help and other services within the new community building at Court Lodge will also be required.

The County Council – as Local Minerals and Waste Planning Authority - confirms that, according to British Geological Survey safeguarding data, Sandstone (Folkestone Formation) is present within the allocated site and are vulnerable to sterilisation. As set out in the adopted Kent Minerals and Waste Local Plan 2013-2030, Policy CSM 5: Land-won Mineral Safeguarding and Policy DM 7: Safeguarding Mineral Resources detail how minerals of economic importance will be safeguarded from being unnecessari

Policy S19 allocates up to 120 dwellings on the site known as 'Conningbrook Phase 2'. 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) the development site is in close proximity to Ashford Wastewater Treatment Works (WTWs) and (ii) that additional loc

Paragraph 4.24 explains that; 'There are two public rights of way running east-west across the site. One provides an at grade pedestrian crossing over the railway line into the Conningbrook Country Park. The other diverts north to meet a further public right of way which runs just beyond and along the northern boundary of the site, and provides a further at-grade pedestrian crossing over the railway line. Given the proposed scale of development here, combined with that at Conningbrook means tha

CPRE objects to this proposed allocation. There are also concerns about the additional traffic that would be generated by this scheme and the adjacent 'Land North East of Willesborough Road' development which would together amount to 1120 dwellings. KCC completed a focused transport assessment on this area (Traffic Impact Assessment Summary Report March 2016) and identified junction capacity problems in the study area, concluding that 'in order to provide for future development, alternative jun

Kent Wildlife Trust objects to this allocation at present. The policy wording seems ambiguous in S19. Para 4.221 implies that new allocation of 120 homes is separate from phase 1 of 300 homes. However, it is implied elsewhere (4.211 and 4.212) that phase 2 has been considered as part of original masterplanning process. Therefore it is unclear whether the impacts of this allocation of 120 dwellings has already been considered in the strategic allocation of Conningbrook and the assessment of recr

POLICY S19 – CONNINGBROOK RESIDENTIAL PHASE 2 This site is likely to adversely impact both the SRN in terms of congestion and safety. In the absence of a current transport evidence base there is uncertainty regarding the impacts of this site on the SRN and the proposed M20 Junction 10a. We would welcome the opportunity to work with ABC to assess the site SRN impacts of this site ahead of document submission.

Conningbrook Residential Phase 2 will be built over the overflow carpark for the Julie Rose Stadium and the Conningbrook Lakes Country Park. The overflow carpark is often used when events are held at the stadium and it is anticipated that more events will be held there and also at the country park. Another overflow car park to accommodate these vehicles will result in sterilising land to the detriment of the natural environment of the park. Additionally the number of dwellings in this developme

Building additional houses on this site is simply a way of helping to provide for a junior school on the adjacent site of Kennington North East. It is not justifiable as sustainable development, as this site is not within reasonable walking distance of any facilities. The existing permission was given to create a country park. If there is land available on the site then it should be considered to be added to the community facility, by planting of further woodland and extending the country park,

Summary 1. Whilst we support the principle Of residential development At S19 Conningbrook, we object to this policy's capacity and land area as identified in the published documents. The suggested area shown on page 102 of the plan and headed 'Conningbrook Residential H2' is much smaller than the area identified in all masterplanning studies for the development of the site. Accordingly, the suggested site capacity of 120 dwellings fails to use the land efficiently and to maximise the potential
