KIG case starts to crumble

On Tuesday I spoke at the public inquiry into the Kent International Gateway (KIG). I challenged AXA / KIG over their heroic ecomonic assumptions that claim that KIG would be good for Bearsted, Maidstone and the country. Obviously, their case was complete rubbish and the one question they fired back at me seemed to justify my argument. 

I gather that the Joint Parishes Group dropped a bombshell this week at the inquiry, showing that the KIG application misquoted guidance from the Institute of Light Engineers. If correct guidance is applied the site could not operate 24/7. Well done JPG people!!!

Stop KIG are continuing with their excellent campaign and it was good to meet key people on Tuesday. It was also great to see a strong presence from CPRE / Protect Kent.
