12th Dec is deadline to have your say on Invicta Barracks development plan. Let your voice be heard.
The Government's recent announcement that the Army will now not leave until 2029 (rather than 2027 as previously indicated) is a potential game changer. As is Cllr. Tony Harwood's success in gaining a commitment from Maidstone Council to assess trees and woodland on the site for Tree Preservation Orders. Tony is also liaising with Historic England on a bid to get parkland at the Barracks added to the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.
Cllr. Tony Harwood states: “This is the greatest threat to face North Ward in many years. If we are to have any chance of defeating these unsustainable plans for local housing growth or, perhaps more realistically, reduce their scale, local residents must now stand-up and be counted.”
