Public meeting on Herne Bay developments tonight

19 February 2013

Herne Bay Golf Club

The potential development of 1,400 homes in Herne Bay will be discussed at a public meeting.

Proposed sites at Herne Bay Golf Course and Strode Farm will be on the agenda at St Martin's Church, Herne, from 7.30pm tonight.

The golf club plans include about 400 homes, commerical developments, a supermarket and new sports pitches.

The suggestion for Strode Farm would create about 1,000 homes but could be dependent on a new road from Eddington roundabout behind homes on Lower Herne Road.

The meeting has been organised by the Herne and Broomfield Parish Council for residents to voice any concerns or support.

The parish council's notice about the meeting asks: "Is the loss of the green space, between Herne and Greenhill, to development worth a relief road for Herne?"

A questionnaire has already been circulated to people from the area, asking whether they would like either proposal to be included in the Local Development Plan, which sets out planning strategy for the area.
