God Had an Off Monday – The Flood, Parting of Red Seas, Destruction of Sodom & Gommarah – now Coming Soon to ‘Biblical Scale Destruction’ :- expanding Maidstone by less than 10%.

To add to the all ‘housing is evil’ hyperbole that simply discredits those who fail to make good planning arguments and just use Chicken Little language that will just leave planning inspectors sighing in exacperation.

Villagers in Lenham have said “enough is enough” as they warn a 5,000-home village could cause “environmental destruction on a biblical scale”…

The villagers are angry at the council’s continued inclusion of a 5,000-home garden village at nearby Lenham Heath in its Local Plan Review.

SOHL said the borough council’s plan represented “environmental destruction on a biblical scale.”

She said: “Maidstone council has already wasted over £50,000 of our money on a superfluous public relations company trying to persuade us the garden village is a good idea. And it’s spent an eye-watering £564,000 so far on developing its vanity project.

The borough argues that it is obliged by the Government to meet its housing targets, and that a garden village, which is large enough to finance mitigation measures, is a better way to do that then many scattered small-scale building sites.

Actually which of the beauty contest Garden Communities Maidstone studied take forward is a tough question that will dominate their EIP. Careful planning argument please not the ‘end is nigh’ biblical speechifying reminding you of the late Reverend Ian Paisley.

  1. We’ll inspectors are bit like Pontius Pilate now: washing their hands of plans they don’t think are optimal but still ‘an appropriate strategy’ and don’t meet needs but will throw in a second coming, sorry review mechanism!
