In response to Gravesham Borough Council’s proposal to build 8,000 homes in the borough, many of which are planned to be built on the Green Belt, residents have formed an action group to examine and fight the proposals.
They have formed a group under the auspices of CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England). It has four aims:
• To defend the Green Belt
• To challenge the number of homes to be built
• Raise public awareness of air-pollution issues and how air quality can be improved
• Campaign for all new houses in Gravesham to be zero carbon
The challenges facing Gravesham are vast, but if we can all work together they have a greater chance of being resolved.
Alex Hills, chairman of CPRE Kent’s Gravesham committee, said: “We are holding a public meeting at Istead Rise Community Centre – all concerned residents should attend.
“This will be on a Friday towards the end of March and once the date is confirmed it will be published.
“Please email info@cprekent.org.uk or visit our website, cprekent.org.uk, for information.”
