Thoughtless Damage to Wildlife Habitat

Those of you who read our report in the  July edition of Go Folkestone Magazine regarding a proposed development (Y18/1013/FH) in Romney Avenue will be pleased to know that Folkestone and Hythe  Planning Authority have refused the application, giving seven points against and non for the project. There was a good number objections from local people all with similar concerns although not everybody wholly  against and the wildlife and badger issue was a significant factor along with several technical concerns. Indeed judging from the amount of times 'insufficient information' was used in the assessment you would wonder just how much preparation was undertaken.

This does seem a fair decision in keeping with local concerns but the possibility of an amended application is a possibility.
