Thames Gateway Development
1st December 2014
Attended the monthly Planning, and Highways & Transportation Committees, when the main item for discussion, other than three planning applications, was the potential impact of the Thames Gateway developments, including the London Paramount Project. It was agreed that development in the Thames Gateway area would likely bring significant visitor pressures to the Darent Valley, as well as traffic movements, both inside and nearby the Darent Valley. It was agreed to write to both Kent County Council and Sevenoaks District Council requesting what thought had put into the visitor and traffic pressures to be expected, and what mitigation is being planned.
