Petition asks for green buffer zone between Mersham and proposed customs clearance site

The proposed buffer zone is the last green field between Mersham and the planned customs clearance site

Ashford residents are being asked to sign a petition calling for an area of countryside at Mersham to be protected from development.
The land, east of Highfield Lane, is the last green field between Mersham and the proposed customs clearance and lorry-holding area, and The Village Alliance is urging Ashford Borough Council to keep it as a green buffer zone.
This could be done through its Strategic Gap in Perpetuity policy, which protects ancient settlements and countryside from encroachment.
The petition is attached here for you to print and sign.
Once signed, it can be passed to neighbours and friends. If you include your email address, you will be kept informed of progress with the campaign.
Signed petition forms can be left at Mersham Village Stores, The Royal Oak or the Farriers Arms by Sunday, August 30.
If you need your form collecting, or any further information, phone 07732 382624. You can also send your signed petition (scanned if necessary), including your address, by email to thevillageallianceTVA@gmail.com
