Were not opposed to new housing BUT

  • This cannot happen with the current infrastructure things need to change before this can go ahead
  • Current A20 road is severely permanently congested between West Malling and Allington
  • A26 between Barming and Mereworth is permanently congested in each direction
  • Sweets lane ( a one way country road) is permanently congested in each direction
  • Hermitage Lane is permanently congested with a massive housing development under construction that will only make maters worse
  • New Road in East Malling is permanently congested in each direction
  • Aylesford village to Ditton Traffic lights (Station Road) is permanently congested
  • New Hythe Lane is permanently congested in each direction
  • Lunsford Lane is permanently congested in each direction
  • Local schools are all full
  • Doctors surgery's are all full and over subscribed
  • Local Dentists are full and over subscribed
  • Local Hospital is always full capacity and main Pembury hospital most days would take you over an hour to get to
  • Roads are unsafe especially around school time
  • The whole area is now in permanent gridlock between 2.45pm & 7.45pm 
  • East Malling Research will always spend and want more money. This will not shut down or incur any job loses if this plan does not go ahead but the local community will suffer and will never recover
  • All these issues need to be addressed before we can consider any new housing
  • One proposal which would make sense is to build a new road from Kings Hill through to Barming station then down to 20/20 roundabout and develop off this road that way the main A20 & A26 will not have to take anymore traffic
  • Also the opening up of the road between Aylesford station and Lunsford Tesco would relieve traffic from the A20
