David Hatcher started this petition to Mayor Maidstone Borough Council

As a result of recent planning decisions that have crippled south-east Maidstone with traffic congestion that will only get worse, we urge Councillors to exert more control and authority over the Planning and Legal Departments to achieve support for their decisions to improve the infrastructure for Maidstone on our behalf.

For too long now we have seen the Maidstone strategic planning process suffer under the influence and ideas of Council Officers working too closely with landowners and developers, rather than be the source of viable options that improve rather than continually degrade conditions for existing residents. 

Please sign to acknowledge that we wish to see the Chief Executive and Senior Management at Maidstone Borough Council provide stronger support to the decisions of Councillors, rather than formulate their own agenda and a planning strategy under the Local Plan that appears to be derived from the planning department and developers wishes.

At the next local council elections, regardless of which candidates you support, make it clear we want council employees to support and facilitate our elected representatives’ decisions, rather than operate an agenda of their own.  

In signing this petition you are reinforcing that view.
