"I am opposed to expansion of the Kent Science Park and opposed to massive housing developments south of the A2"
Cllr Mike Whiting prior to supporting HIF bid
Why we are objecting to the KSP planing applications?
Although the consultation delivered more objections than letters of support, those that do support the application do so on the basis of the jobs that it might one day deliver.
However 60% of those jobs will be created inside the security fence without the need for expansion. Our objection is primarily concerned with the need to expand and the subsequent traffic implications that an expansion might pose whether it be inside or outside of the security fence.
The need for expansion has not been proven, the traffic implications can not be mitigated, so therefore we object.
The documents below contain the full details of our objections to the applications of August and March 2009
