Derek Wyatt presented our petition to the chamber on 1st May.
Derek told the chamber
"I wish to present a petition brought by the Five Parishes Opposition Group and others in my constituency against the Kent science park proposals. I wholeheartedly support the group and its allies, and I have secured three Adjournment debates on this subject. The total number of signatures is 3,200."
The petition states:
The Petition of the members of the 5 Parishes Opposition Group and others,
Declares that the petitioners object to any planning proposal by the Kent Science Park that seeks permission for either one or all of the following: to expand the site beyond the existing security boundary; to build any number of houses on green fields; to construct an A2-M2 road link; and to undertake any other affiliated building works.
