This site would be visually intrusive and detract and harm the North Downs AONB and would not meet the duty to give the AONB the highest level of protection. The location is unsuitsble, the 24/7 noise pollution from the concrete surface of the M20 only metres away would be detrimental to the health of the occupants. There is no room for adequate bunding or acoustic fencing, which would damage the open character of the AONB. The exit onto a much used lane with local and HGV traffic and no pavemen

The policy does not comply with the HOU16 policy for the provision of traveller sites , which states that prospective sites should only be considered suitable if they provide good access to services and amenities and if they meet minimum standards regarding pollution and noise. DW7 and DW8 are within a few metres of a busy motorway used night and day by diesel-emitting HGVs- the air quality, especially for vulnerable residents such as children or those with breathing problems, is likely to be in

Firstly thank you for the opportunity to remind the Planning Department of their own decision regarding this site and reinforce that the initial decision was absolutely correct – namely that the site should never be allowed! See Application No: 12/00923/AS Attached within this file are copies of decisions from the December 2012 Planning Committee refusing permission along with the temporary time-limited retrospective appeal decision from the Planning Inspectorate which in itself was done under

Reasons why the proposed planning on site DW7 and DW8 for a travellers site is not feasible. Policy S44 is unsound for the following reasons The most important issue is the fact that this proposed site falls in AONB which the planners want to play down as it sits between the the M20 and the Railway Line. But when a recent planning application was put forward in the same area it was refused. Your Ref 15/00360/NF for it being not in keeping with an AONB. The sites DW7 & DW8 are located within a

CPRE objects to this proposed allocation for the following reasons: * The Council has a responsibility to the health and wellbeing of its residents. The siting of residential uses in a location such this with disregard for potential noise and pollution related impacts cannot amount to sustainable development. The health and well-being of the current generation is important. Acoustic barriers would not be would not be compatible with the open character of the AONB. * The proposed development wo

The proposed development set out under draft policy S44 does not meet the requirements for residential amenity. In the absence of a site layout plan, it is not possible to comment on whether the proposed development would have or not have an adverse impact on the residential amenity of those occupying the proposed development or neighbouring occupiers. Given the proposed expansion in the number of pitches, it is highly likely that noise and disturbance from the expanded site will adversely imp
