Chilmington Green Petition Handed to No 10

Protesters against plans for up to 5,750 homes on Kent farmland have handed in an 8,000 signature petition to No 10 Downing Street.

The proposed development, to include four new schools, health services and shops, would cover about 1,000 acres at Chilmington Green, south of Ashford.


Ashford certainly has seen its share of new house building in recent years. Chilmington Green is an area known to support breeding great crested newt.
