The following has been received by Hollingbourne Parish Council on behalf of Mark McGiffin who is standing for Maidstone Rural East in the County Council elections on 4th May. Hollingbourne voting will be at the Cardwell Pavilion from 7am to 10pm. All five candidates have been asked to contribute to the village website and were asked to comment on local issues including Operation Stack, rural services, and development at Junction 8 of the M20. UKIP is the first to respond as follows:-
Our entire campaign is centred around infrastructure inadequacy regarding roads,schools,health etc. MBC have not helped with an over adventurous local plan . Protection for local villages from developers which should be supported by KCC. We are against any development at Junction 8 again due to major infrastructure flaws and more encroachment upon green field development. Enforcement and control of continental lorry parking.
Thank you for your interest
Chairman UKIP Faversham and Mid Kent
