The Faversham Society is extremely concerned about the substantial harm that would be done to Faversham if the proposed housing development was to be permitted. The Society, therefore, approached a barrister to prepare a substantial submission on our behalf.
The application should be refused due to the harm it would cause to the historic environment. This is without prejudice to the other cogent and valid reasons for refusing permission advanced by the Faversham Society and others.

An Inspector has decided in Tonbridge and West Malling that
"The site and the land around it would be diminished to the extent that it would no longer be perceived as rural or open countryside." and concluded that "This would cause very significant harm to the character and appearance of the area." The decision can be found on the Planning Inspectorate's website under reference number 3254563. More
