ENV12 Air Quality measured at The William Harvey Hospital site suffers from unacceptable levels of carbon dioxide already, whilst Willesborough's proximity to Jct 10 creates a CO2 air quality problem. Will Sevington and Mersham's proximity to the future Jct 10a create similar problems? Sevington Park Warehousing, Waterbrook lorry park and the additional traffic on the A2070 will add to the problem, creating a decrease in air quality. Diesel vehicle emissions are proved to be damaging to health.

Education sector - its important to provide enough quality school places to meet the needs of Ashford's growth.Ther is no mention of the Adult education provision within the borough. Health - Provision for new facilities are mentioned, but who will staff these and is the Local Health Authority will to take these on? It is currently very difficult to register at a doctors' or dentists' surgery.

5.456 Working with providers to contribute via S106 to the local infrastructure is fine if it really is transparent and really provides for the items for which it is intended. Greater clarity should be available for all infrastructure funding by all developers.

TRA9 Planned proposals for HGV traffic being fundamental to a development site. Was this policy in the minds of planners when outline approval was given to Sevington Park. Has sufficient care been taken over HGV parking allocations which of course depends on whom the tenants eventually are. Lights, noise and off-site parking 24/7 - limiting hours of operation

3.22 Scale limitations for development regarding infrastructure projects suych as M20Jct10a 3.57 This policy correctly limits the possibility of uncontrolled urban sprawl - however the plan proposes the largest areas of development to the South/ South East / East and North East of Ashford - all feeding into the A2070 and Jcts 10 and 10a 3.61 Smaller rural settlements such as Mersham have all the characters and facilities listed but are you protecting it? 3.67 AONBs affected by building OUTSID

All the aforementioned developments feed into the A2070 and jcts 10 and 10a for access including Chilmington Green new southern link road. 4.169 The above statement when combined with this policy should mean that this statement is unsafe regarding HE scheme's ability to cope with the combined traffic nos. The Local Plan proposes a high proportion of housing development around Kingsnorth and Sevington (a total of 2,210 new builds). The draft Local Plan allows for 1-3 suburban parking spaces per

An extra 300 lorries - now making 600 lorries at Waterbrook lorry park Suitable mitigation would be sound if it were not for the Council's decision to allow traffic movements 24/7 Reversing noise at night light spillage at night - no sleep for the local residents This is added to similar concerns `re Sevington Park which have been ignored by the council in the outline planning already given for Sevington Park
