The NAAG's team just wanted to let you know we have received an overwhelming number of responses to this recent campaign to speak out and inform Barton Willmore what the local residents think of their continued arrogant behaviour by thinking they can propose yet more schemes… Please keep them coming, you have until the 12th August to respond. click here
We would like to share with you some of the articulate comments we have received by local supporters over the past few days. We thank you for your time to participate at this important juncture and appreciate all your support.
"Since moving to this area in 1968 and having seen many open green fields built on, this development must not be allowed as this is the last open area between Allington, Barming and West Malling.i totally agree with Maidstone and Tonbridge Council in refusing this development in any form."
"We have previously submitted our objections and thoughts of any development on this site both to Maidstone District Council and to Tonbridge and Malling District Council. We are shocked at Croudace`s audacity to try and implement substitute plans 2 or 3 as a result of the original plan being refused by both councils. We want the land to be left free from any building development but would agree to the site being developed into parkland for the benefit of all the community.We hope any further appeal on behalf of Croudace will be rejected."
"I totally oppose both of these building schemes due to the effects on local traffic, the environment, lack of availability to local people of houses which will be too expensive to buy anyway, loss of ancient woodland, loss of walking space, space to clear your head and forget about the stresses of the day."
"I cannot even bring myself to waste my time writing comments on a scheme which disgusts me in every way possible. "
"Ludicrous plans. All residents will oppose such idiocy."
"I am in Canada on holiday, but still feel the need to still fight for this land. Leave our little bit of space alone."
"We object to this proposal completely, the destruction of the only green belt between Allington and Aylesford, the destruction of woodland, access through Trevor Drive creating a speed rat run to the A20. The increased traffic and pollution on roads that are already gridlocked at peak times, and getting worse. "
"This is a lovely open space well used for walking and it keeps Maidstone separate from Aylesford. Once green fields are built on they are lost forever, we need green areas for future generations. Hermitage Lane is already a very busy road and will cause real traffic congestion if more cars use the road."
"You will ruin the Allington and Barming area. It is already over-populated for the facilities available including road network. We do not need social housing in an area already over populated. The impact on quality of life for current residents will be devastating. The increased pollution levels will be totally unacceptable. LEAVE THIS LAND ALONE YOU WILL RUIN OUR COMMUNITY!! "
"If we don't protect areas like these from development we are ruining the future for our children and residents of Allington and surrounding areas. Once these green areas are swallowed by development they can never be reclaimed. Develop the run down abandoned areas and leave our green belt alone. The proposals are also unrealistic, give no where near enough space for car parking for the new occupants and are going to put more strain again on our roads and ourselves already stretched services"
How totally organised would it be to have a pre-prepared letter to auto-email to Barton Willmore in response to their proposed schemes 2 & 3 as shown in their recent flyer posted through Allington Residents letterboxes? - fear no more, here is just what you have been looking for… but be quick the deadline is the 12th August 2014.
