S27 is not justified or effective in its current form. Any development will cause issues to the local roads, school and balance of Biddenden as a village. 45 homes is too high a number of new properties in one space to be absorbed into the current village and there is a very real possibility that the "maximum" of 45 homes will be exceeded if the "community facility" is not forthcoming. It is a large site and the developer will no doubt want to maximise his profit. It is not sustainable because

S27 has not been positively prepared and objectively assessed against infrastructure and transport needs, it merely ticks a box for the deliverance of house numbers. This is top down planning of the worst reactive kind. S27 is not justified. The evidence in survey of 10/10/14 is inaccurate, the research is flawed. As it stands S27 is not effective. It is not possible to deliver S27 without far more community engagement which will take a long time. It seems likely that no building for the commu

I consider the proposed development on North Street, Biddenden to be undesirable, in its current form, based upon a number of points. First, the plan proposes 45 houses, to be located at the southern end of the site, necessitating an access road to reach the proposed houses. As such, it can reasonably be assumed that "in-fill" will follow to the limit of the site which would have the potential for some 60-80 properties (as was displayed by the developer at a roadshow previously). This would be t

Site - North Street, Biddenden, Kent. I refer to the site off North Street, Biddenden, which has been identified by ABC as being suitable for a residential development for up to 45 homes, together with the creation of a mixed-use Community Building with off street parking. Firstly, I think that a single residential development of up to 45 homes will significantly and detrimentally alter the character and charm of the village, and it has already been suggested by Cllr Bell (ABC) that a single r

We bought our house in Mansion House Close because of the rural views, it being a quiet cul-de-sac and a lovely village atmosphere. Now, with the possibility of building in the field next to us, we feel very upset that living in the village will change for the worse for us. Following a recent parish planning meeting in the village hall, it was obvious that those villagers objecting to further building were not being listened to. Several important issues were raised, i.e. the school is already b

I understand a need for more rural housing. However, this cannot be to the detriment of this village. Any new development a) must be Low density including sufficient garden space b) must be sustainable c) must enhance the village d) must not put further strain on school places, the infrastructure and medical facilities. Therefore I recommend Ashford Borough Council not to approve any more than 25 dwellings on the North Street Site. I also recommend the revised plan includes improvement to the

General Objection This local plan fails to reflect Priority 2 and Priority 4 of the Corporate Plan because:- (i) the housing mix in the plan does not contain a range of tenures nor a range of age groups. The plan involves 45 dwellings for sale consisting of 3,4 and 5 bedroomed houses. This caters only for families or childless couples who could afford to buy houses on the site. (ii) the design of the site does not safeguard local heritage or the distinctive character of the outskirts of the vil

Plan ref to Biddenden North Sreet (A274) I was at the packed village meeting 28th June 2016 ref proposal for 45 houses this was roundelay rejected by all ages of the audience but councillors took no notice of their views which I feel was undemocratic only Neil Bell was aware of this situation. His plan of 20-25 houses plus infills was sensible. Points put forward by the audience and ignored, the character and integrity of the village would be lost with another large estate. Infrastructure not t

The proposal is inconsistent with the parish plan to 2022 which showed the majority thought that up to 25 units were acceptable by 2022 , the preference stated within the plan was for infill rather than larger developments in essentially a small village, and that Green spaces within the village are very important for residents and wildlife. Most of the 25 mentioned have already been built or planned; all have been smaller developments and/or infill which The ABC plan calls for all developments
