Make your voice heard in Kent Voice!

It’s that time! Winter’s late if ultimately unspectacular splutter into life means one thing to us at CPRE Kent Towers… it’s the season to start putting together the spring/summer edition of Kent Voice.
This, of course, is the biannual magazine for our county branch of CPRE and carries a range of articles, features and updates on more technical matters such as the current state of play with Local Plans across the county.
We are always keen to carry the view of our members – and indeed anyone with opinions on what we as an organisation do or what is going on in the Kent countryside.
If you would like a letter printed or wish to respond to what has been included in previous editions, please email the magazine’s editor David Mairs at david.mairs@cprekent.org.uk or phone 01233 714547.
If you need any further convincing, you can read the Autumn/Winter 2017 edition here
We look forward to hearing from you!
