Dear All


WeLoveChainhurst has spent the last couple of weeks working through the new information provided by Fridays and DHA in response to MBC Planning's "Regulation 25" letter issued to them before Christmas, and we have written some text (see below) for you to use to OBJECT AGAIN.


We have until 20th March 2022 to let the Borough Council Planning department, and therefore the Planning Committee who will decide whether this proposal can go ahead, know that we STILL SAY NO despite the additional information they have provided.


If you’ve objected before, please do so again, or if you didn’t get round to it last time, then please
do so now.

What you choose to say is of course up to you. Just reasserting your previous objection would work, but you may wish to say more about a particular aspect of the application that matters to you; Damage to the SSSI River Beult, risk of adverse effects on wildlife, traffic issues, footpaths being re-routed, what the site will look like in our countryside, flooding, there’s a long list to choose from! You can copy and paste the following text to use in an email objection, an online objection or as the text of a postal objection:- 

Dear Maidstone Borough Council Planning,


I am writing to you in order to lodge a formal objection to the planned construction of three poultry units at Reed Court Farm, Hunton Road, Marden, Tonbridge, Kent, TN12 9SJ (Planning Application Number MA/20/505751).


I am aware that the applicant has recently supplied additional information, and made further changes to what is proposed. Despite these changes, I am of the view that redevelopment of Reed Court Farm as an industrial scale chicken farm should not be permitted.


Yours sincerely,


Thanks as always, and please get in touch if we can help with your objection -


Team WeLoveChainhurst
