point h above refers to the extension of the tree cover from Breeches Wood across to the hospital. However, it specifies this is for screening whereas in fact it would provide an important green infrastructure connection between the Local Wildlife Site Willesborough Lees (AS44) and Breeches Wood. The functional role of this woodland extension needs to be specified and will demonstrate compliance with the NPPF para 114 bullet point 1.

CPRE is concerned that this site will be a source of parking for the hospital. Relying on an access form the A20 means this traffic will cause addition traffic movements around the motorway junction, in addition to that created by residents. It is important that this site integrates well with junction 10a improvements.

POLICY S17 – LAND AT WILLESBOROUGH LEES Policy S17 proposes the Land at Willesborough Lees site is allocated for up to 200 dwellings. The Policy states that the proposal will include "a phasing programme to be agreed with the Borough Council, local Highway Authority and Highways Agency that will include the construction and opening of the access road from the A20 to the hospital and the closure of Hinxhill Lane." The impact of the site on the SRN should be set out in the transport evidence ba

Closing of Hinxhill Lane will cause traffic issues for residents in Wye, who use this lane to access the A20/M20, rather than have to use the level crossing and access these roads by travelling through Ashford. Whilst there may be a benefit to a small number of residents on Hinxhall Lane and The Street, this will simply transfer the problem to other residents in the area, such as Boughton Lees, as people try to access the M20 via there.

Closure of Hinxhill Lane will simply divert traffic to Wye and villages north east of Ashford onto the Willesborough Road and towards Kennington, where traffic issues also exist. Currently residents of Wye (and those going to the Wye Free School and Wye Primary School) use Hinxhill Lane as a route to the M20/A20, closure of this would significantly impact on the level crossing levels of traffic, which is already a congestion point. An alternative should be sought to this proposal.
