Swale Borough Council (SBC) is proposing to build 1,100 – 1,400 new houses north and south of the A2 London Road – plus a bypass that would pour concrete over the green fields of Lynsted.
The so-called “Teynham Area of Opportunity” (TAO) includes plans for 1,100 homes.However, over 300 houses have already been approved under the existing ‘Bearing Fruits’ plan.
So, in reality, we are talking 1,400+ more houses.At the last census there were 1,232 households in Teynham and 468 in Lynsted.So you can see what a MASSIVE increase this would be.
SBC buried these proposals in bureaucratic jargon and dysfunctional website pages, breaking their promises to us for meaningful consultation. We have been presented with no justification or analysis to support the idea of the TAO.
YOU MUST SUBMIT COMMENTS BY 30 APRIL. THE HOUSES AND BYPASS MIGHT NOT BE BUILT UNTIL 2028 – BUT THE DECISION TO BUILD THEM IS BEING MADE NOW
