Kent Wildlife Trust would like to express a general view on arable land loss, as it applies to a large number of proposed allocations in Ashford, in addition to allocations that have already been made through the current Local Plan. Kent Wildlife Trust would recommend that ABC should develop an appropriate policy to address the cumulative impact of the loss of arable land and its locally important habitats and species. This is not captured elsewhere, such as through the protected species legisl

In simple terms, the sequential effect of a range of small scale developments was creating a diminution of the environment of the area in and around the villages.The residents who suppor
