MBC launch public consultation on the infrastructure levy paid by developers.

Maidstone Borough Council has launched a public consultation on the infrastructure levy charged to developers. This is usually in the form of Section 106 agreements like those payable to the developers of Godfrey Meadow, Brickfields Close (Fernham Homes), and Windmill Lane (Country House Homes) in Hollingbourne where most but not all of the money  is being paid for the benefit of Harrietsham residents. Please Read More for a message received by Hollingbourne Parish Council for further information.
