Kingsdown Beach statement...

Some of you may already know that Tingdene has withdrawn its planning application to install huge huts on Kingsdown White Cliff's beach, which is excellent news.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 petition.

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.
