Firstly, there is the Local Plan review from Maidstone Borough Council:
You've got until 30 Sept to comment on this. Given the dreadful Local Plan that we currently have, please comment. I do not want out of character tower blocks in the town or our farmland concreted over. Oh, and when the hell will they stop promoting 'growth' as a good thing?
Also to comment on (just 2 days left) is the Kent Emission Strategy. This is such a poor strategy that words really do fail me.
- The target of 2050 to be carbon neutral is 25 years too late and will contribute to a cataclysmic future for our children.
- It promotes / accepts growth as good. We need to shrink the economy not grow it.
- There is no mention of closing the airports in Kent, reducing flying, reducing meat consumption, and only one brief mention of planting trees.
