gary fowler started this petition to Ptarmigan land and millwood designer homes

There are plans to build 1,600 homes on grade 1 agricultural land around birchington. This will mmean an additional 4,800 residents in a village of 10,000 residents....we would lose all the characteristics of a vilage. 

Reasons im against this 

Or there are over 800 empty houses in thanet......how about refurbish those first.

Also its grade 1 agricultural land when further to the west is grade 2 and 3 why not build there instead

Birchington primary has an intake of 90 and is one of the most oversubscribed schools in thanet with 152 application's

21 % of birchington is over 65 and that means an already stretched medical service with birchington medical centre already defined by CQC as requiring improvement.

The population of birchington is already 10,000 people with an average of 3 people per household we would estimate 4800 more people living here.......thats slmost a 50% increase with no infrastructure improvements.......the flash printing isnt worth th paper its printed on......words like potential improvements

Promises 13 hectres of parkland when its already miles of countryside and paths..........!

Also unemployment rate in thanet is 5.4% thats double the kent rate of 2.7%........where are all these extra jobs coming from ?
