Mr Stuart Watson, Planning Officer (Strategic Planning) outlined Swale Borough Council’s ‘next steps’ consultation process and highlighted the draft responses to certain questions that Swale Borough Council had asked within the consultation.


Members made the following points:-

·  That most HGV drivers use the A229 (Bluebell Hill) to get to the M2 and this is seen as a significant pressure point for traffic.

·  That early engagement should be undertaken with Swale Borough Council regarding prospects of housing developments neighbouring our Borough.

·  That emphasise should be put on the effect on the AONB by road users using this as a cut through. 

RESOLVED:  That the responses set out in paragraphs 1.9 to 1.15 in the report be agreed as a basis for the Council’s consultation response to the Swale Borough Council Local Plan consultation ‘Looking Ahead’ with particular emphasis on the fact that the response should include a reference to road users using the A2 (AONB) as a cut through which would be damaging on the environment.


Voting:  Unanimous
