In his letter published today on the Local Inspection website, the independent inspector, Mr Spencer, found the policy to develop a new so-called Garden Community at Lenham Heath not sound.

The reference is at page 9, point 5.11 he states: "In summary, the detail of the submitted Lenham Heathlands Policy LPRSP4(a) is not sound.".

He comes to a similar conclusion in relation to the proposal for Lidsing.

The ful content of the inspector's initial findings can be found here: ED70 Maidstone Post Stage 1 Letter 110123.pdf - Google Drive

Lenham Parish Council is carefully considering the detail of this letter.
