Otham development refused again

Maidstone council has once again rejected plans for a new housing estate around St Nicholas Church, in Otham. This will be the third time that the scheme has been denied.

The hundreds of homes are proposed to wrap around the historic site and Grade 1 listed St Nicholas Church, off the narrow Church Road.

The decision was deferred back in May, as reported on Kent Online here

There are still fears however that Bellway, the developers, will appeal to the planning inspectorate, a Government agency, and likely win.

Objections can be sent to: planningcomments@midkent.gov.uk
