At the Faversham Town Council’s Extraordinary Meeting on the 22nd November 2021, the following motion was passed:
Faversham Town Council is opposed to Swale Borough Council’s favoured option in the Regulation 18 consultation, namely Option 3.
Faversham Town Council feel that none of the options are appropriate in meeting our local housing need, specifically the need for affordable housing.
Faversham cannot accept a greater volume of housing without mitigation of its significant constraints around:
~Transport and Air Quality.
~Water and sewerage.
~Climate and biodiversity, including the use of BMV agricultural land.
