The County Council – as Local Minerals and Waste Planning Authority - confirms that, according to British Geological Survey safeguarding data, Sub-alluvial River Terrace deposits and Limestone (Hythe Formation - Kentish Ragstone) are 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 economi

The County Council will require proportionate financial contributions towards KCC services including towards the construction costs of any new education provision required to mitigate the impact of the proposed development, as well as contributions towards the expansion of Finberry Primary School.

While the Commissioners support the allocation of Finberry North West (Policy S16) and Waterbrook (Policy S15), amendments to the policies are required to make them sound. 5.2 Further explanation is set out below. Proposed amendments to each of these sites have already been discussed with officers of the Council. Waterbrook (Policy S16) 5.3 Land at Waterbrook is allocated in the draft Local Plan for a 600 space lorry park, 300 dwellings and a minimum of 20 hectares of commercial developmen

Policy S16 allocates upto 300 dwellings on the site known as 'Waterbrook'. 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 conn

I am pleased to see that the truck stop may be enlarged, though this is a small measure. Every little helps - S 16.

It is noted that the supporting text (paragraph 4.182) references the secondary link to the Finberry development and proposes that this link should now become and 'all-movements' link to accommodate public transport services, a cycle and pedestrian route as well as car traffic. The current intention for this link road (as defined in the S.106 for Finberry) is that it should accommodate pedestrians, buses, cycles and emergency vehicles only. Whilst CSP does not directly object to the opening up

The policy should include wording that ensures the ongoing upkeep and maintenance of Cheesemans Green Lane. It is encouraging no vehicular access is provided to the site from Cheesemans Green Lane since the lane is not wide enough to support the access however the following should be considered: * Effective signage and other preventative measures to ensure that lorry and other goods drivers do not use Cheesemans Green Lane in error. Many are following GPS devices to access the site and get stuc

CPRE supports residential development to the west of the site. It is observed that the south westernmost part of the site lies within an area at risk of flooding and forms part of the draft Ashford Green Corridor. Detailed layout and design will need to respond to these. The proposed lorry park to the east of the site is also supported, subject to high quality landscaping and 'plug-in' facilities to minimise noise.

POLICY S16 – WATERBROOK 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.
