Some of you may already know that Tingdene has withdrawn its planning application to install huge huts on Kingsdown White Cliff's beach, which is excellent news.
Those that signed the DDC website will have received a letter
from DDC. This follows an intense period of work by Kingsdown Conservation Group
who liaised with key expert bodies such as Natural England, National Trust, Kent
AONB leading to these organisations filing strong objections plus KCG's own
submission of a robust rebuttal which debunked the planners assertion that the
huts would not damage this section of wild beach.
This combined with worldwide
condemnation of the plans from 700+ who signed and commented through the online
Whilst all of this is great news, we are aware that we still need to
be vigilant about future plans, so KCG and others are keeping a watchful eye on
future applications. If needed, we can reactivate the petition, review the
rebuttal and get going once again.
Thanks so much for all your support during
the last 3 weeks.
