Hollingbourne asked to fight major development on North Downs side of Sittingbourne.

Hollingbourne Parish Council has been asked to support the fight against the development of thousands of new houses on the Hollingbourne side of Sittingbourne which may generate even more traffic on the B2163/C603 through Hollingbourne. The first page of the campaigning leaflet issued by the 5 Parishes Group from the top of the North Downs is reproduced below.

The full document can be downloaded here:  5-Parishes-stop-mass-housing-web.pdf (97 downloads)

An artist’s impression of what the development might look like appears below. The B2163/C603 runs through Bredgar and Tunstall at the bottom left of the images and could be used to access Junction 8 of the M20 at Hollingbourne. This may cause local traffic problems in Eyhorne Street.

Pictured below is the B2163/C603 through Tunstall which could become much busier if the development proceeds.
