The Steering Group’s Land Use Recommendations will be offered for approval at the Town Council meeting on Monday (21 October). 7pm at the Guildhall.
Once again, we need strong support from the public. If YOU can come along, please do. THIS MATTERS.

The Exclusive Creekside Housing Development Bandwagon just keeps rolling along, presumably hoping that if they keep going, any opposition will be worn down and melt away, from fatigue or despair.
Do not despair, your presence in numbers is what consistently tells the Steering Group & Town Council that at the end, this Plan may not pass Inspection, let alone a Referendum.
Remember the exhibition in June, and the artist’s impressions of so called ideas for discussion; BLOCKS OF RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT, well, that is what has gone forward as the basis of the Plan, TOTALLY IGNORING THE PUBLIC REJECTION, ON THE GROUNDS THAT OTHER PROPOSALS, SUCH AS THIS TRUST’S, ARE NOT VIABLE.
WE REMIND YOU THAT A RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT ON ORDNANCE WHARF IS ALMOST CERTAINLY THE DEATH KNELL FOR ANY WORKSHOP ACTIVITIES AT THE PURIFIER BUILDING, BECAUSE ANY NOISE CREATED NEAR A RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT ALWAYS LEADS TO COMPLAINT AND EVENTUALLY CLOSURE OF THE INDUSTRIAL USE – EVIDENCE ABOUNDS; FRANK & WHITTOME FOR EXAMPLE.
Which is also why the idea of residential units above workshops anywhere, is generally a non starter; which means that mixed use – Industrial and Residential – is really a myth; it actually means Residential.
And it isn’t as if there was such a desperate need; the available and potential sites around Faversham will supply many more houses, of all types, including affordable, than is needed to satisfy the foreseeable housing requirement.
