A pre planning meeting is taking place 21st July to hear the villages response to building 30 affordable houses on the land adjacent to Shalmsford Street. 

The proposal is from the old police house, all the way to the public right of way. 

Allowing this development will impinge on the whole community, and open the flood gates for further greenfield development in our village. 

We have to show these developers that any planning application, will be met with absolute protest and opposition at every corner. Making it a nightmare for them to even consider it. The community of Chartham have won pre planning meetings before, we can do it again if we shout loud enough. 

Your action today can help us win this. Here's why.

Your action in signing this petition will go towards making your voice heard at the pre planning meeting, whether you can attend or not. In addition, this will be loud evidence for any planning committee should an application ever go it. Please sign

“The roads around the school and Bolts Hill would become even more unsafe due to increased traffic flow..the amenities in the village would be stretched even further and part of the Kent downs destroyed forever - ironic it's going to take place to a sign declaring area of outstanding beauty...”

“This proposal is shocking. It is upsetting to continually find that developers want to build on every green space going.”

“Chartham is in danger of becoming nothing more than a housing estate on the outskirts of Canterbury. Green field sites are precious. Let's not destroy them.”

“This development can be better placed in the area so not to disturb this green field site. The issue of additional turning traffic at this junction needs to be carefully considered.”

“Very exposed slope for accommodation on the edge of AONB. This could be the beginning of a complete development of the beautiful Downs.”

“Two points: why build on a greenfield site when there are plenty of brownfield spaces still to convert; and how will already overstretched local services absorb the continuing expansion of Chartham, especially as this project is almost certainly a preliminary to further planning applications on this site? I object!”

“You can never reclaim green spaces once they've gone and building will have a negative effect on wildlife and wellbeing.”

“We need to stop building on green land, we are suppose to be helping/saving the environment. Building these houses destroys habitats and forces animals out”

“We do NOT want this development to go ahead for many reasons including environmental, wildlife conservation, pollution , traffic and inadequate infrastructure to name a few. Our village has supported many developments recently and is losing all its beauty and green spaces.”
