New Letter from Planning Inspectors throws TMBC into disarray, and may be the death of Borough Green Garden City 

ollowing on from the announcement that the Planning Inspectors have cancelled the remaining sessions of the TMBC Public Inquiry comes the news that Sevenoaks DC Judicial Review into PINS rejection of their Plan has FAILED. We suspect our Inspectors have been awaiting the outcome of the JR before issuing a more detailed refusal to TMBC - Happy Christmas, everyone.

Those of you who suffer sewage flooding, Southern Water pledge to resolve it - by 2040! But the good news is they have agreement at Board level to spend £60K on our creaking Pumping Station

A big problems for BGGC developers. Inspectors cancel 2nd & 2rd Phase of the Public Inquiry - this may not yet be the end, but it most definitely the beginning of the end.

 There has been concern voiced about an HGV increase to 240 tippers per day at Borough Green Landfill.

 

Let me try and set minds at rest.

(1) Most importantly, the previous advisory for HGVs not to come through Borough Green is now an enforceable Planning Condition.
(2) this application was by Barton Willmore the BGGC 3000 house developer. They wanted landfill to a lower level, that was dropped, so even at BW's speed the levels will not be high enough to build on until 2026, two years after BGGC Phase 1 HAS to start.
(3) If it can't start on time, the Local Plan is unsound.
(4) There is a very strong suspicion that the Pit Owner is quite happy with the number of vehicles he operates now, and is filling his pit at his own speed, thank you very much.
(5) What was of extreme concern is that an "unknown" member of Borough Green Parish Council tried to lodge a Standards Complaint against Harry Rayner to prevent him speaking to the Planning Committee.
