Core Strategy Consultation : Pave Paradise

Maidstone Borough Council have stated consulting on the Core Strategy, documents available here. You have until 14th October to submit comments. Of course the leader of the council, Chris Garland, has conveniently ignored his promise made a a full council meeting to scrap the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment and comission a fresh one.

The Core Strategy consultation comes at the same time as Pickles and Clark are consulting on removing planning laws almost in their entirety. This is from Monbiot and this from Friend of the Earth. With the economy nosediving, it probably seemed a good week / month / year to bury the bad news that paradise is to be paved for a parking lot.
