Object to planning proposal 13/1291, Land North of Howland Road

The Wild Meadow, land north of Howland Road is an approximate 6 acre site, which supports the life of a number of important species, which are endangered within the UK, but are a crucial part of the living eco system which surounds us and plays an important part in our day to day life. These species include many different butterflies and bee, grass snake and adders small mammals and brids including owls and bats. This land has never been working land and is a buffer between the train line and the Howland Road and is pure habitation. It has been like this for a very long time, yet Maidstone Borough Council are unwilling to put forward an environmental study of the area.

Like many places in England this piece of land is under threat by a housing development proposal due to the fact that it is neither working land or occupied land and therefore is deemed ripe for development.

If this land were to be built upon, it would not only devastate the wild population, it will have lasting effect on the humans populations as well, destroying the bio-diversity, building on a natural drainage system and causing flooring to the village and railway.

Areas like these are far and few and need protection. Please support this cause and object to planning proposal 13/1291 by signing this petition.
