Private Eye Report denied by Roxhill Developments Limited.

Roxhill Developments Limited who wish to develop at massive warehousing complex on Woodcut Farm at Junction 8 of the M20 have denied a recent Private Eye report that they are controlled by FRXL Developments Limited who are registered in the tax haven of the Cayman Islands. Their Development Director Mr Charles Blake has said ” Roxhill is a UK registered company and not controlled from the Cayman Islands”.

A check with Companies House indicates that FRXL has significant control over Roxhill. Please follow the link for more information https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/07436264/persons-with-significant-control

The Cayman Islands are secretive about the ownership of locally registered companies. According to the current issue of Private Eye last year the Government launched a scheme whereby the ultimate owners of British property has to be disclosed.

Roxhill have appealed against Maidstone Borough Council’s refusal to grant planning permission for the 46,523 square metre warehousing development at Woodcut Farm. The plans have been opposed by all local Parish Councils, Kent County Council, CPRE, Leeds Castle, and thousands of local residents.

Comments about the scheme can be sent to the Planning Inspector by the revised date of 17th March at :-
