Swale Council’s planning committee will make a final decision this Thursday on the application to build a housing development on land to the East of Lynsted Lane, behind the F J Williams joinery yard.

Lynsted with Kingsdown Parish Council objects strongly to this application and over 200 letters of objection were submitted by local residents.   

The committee voted against the plans in March, but Swale’s head of planning “called in” the application for further consideration.  

It would make traffic congestion and air pollution in the narrow Lynsted Lane even worse.  Residents who currently park their cars outside their own homes would be forced to park further down the lane on a blind bend.  And pedestrian access would be through a busy joinery yard.

Residents are welcome to attend the meeting.  Details are as follows:  

Date:               Thursday 23 June.      7pm

Venue:            Swale House, East Street, Sittingbourne ME10 3HT
