  • Knole Farm – Wateringbury/Teston -complaint re possible change of use

Residents in Red Hill were concerned about land at the back of their gardens which was being used as some form of storage. There were containers on site, a number of vehicles and the number of items on site was increasing.  There is no entrance to the land from Red Hill but in Malling Road Teston. This issue had been raised with TMBC before when the Borough Council were asked to liaise with Maidstone Borough Council but nothing had been done.  TMBC Planning enforcement have been asked to look into this again. It was agreed that if a satisfactory answer was not forthcoming contact should be made to the Borough Council’s  Chief Executive


The meeting was closed at approximately 9.45pm.
