To the Kent Messenger:
I found the KIG meeting at Hollingbourne last week, quite nauseating. The meeting was dominated by self-congratulatory Tories repeating the same few objections to the KIG plan. At one point the Tories even stated that they would never allow development on the land earmarked by KIG.
These are fine words indeed but clearly they have very short memories about their own actions. Let us not forget that it was last year's Tory administration in Maidstone that put forward a plan - their 'Core Strategy' - to cover the same piece of land with houses, and that it was this plan that has allowed AXA to suggest development on the site.
