Crowdfunding - Forty Acre Site and Broadwater Farm

East Malling & Larkfield Parish Council, with support from other local Parish Councils, is crowdfunding for its campaign to extend the Green Belt to protect land between East Malling and West Malling, including the agricultural fields at Forty Acres and Broadwater Farm. The extension will protect the setting of the historic market town of West Malling and prevent East Malling and West Malling joining up with Kings Hill in the south and Larkfield and Leybourne in the north in one large conurbation.

The planning application for 250 homes at Forty Acres is at a critical stage and support is needed for obtaining legal advice and representation for the Local Plan hearings before the Planning Inspectorate in the autumn.

Whether you can spare £5, £10, £50 or more, all funds donated will be gratefully received and will help fight to protect the countryside for the future.

The cost of seeking legal advice and representation at the Local Plan hearing is expected to be more than £50,000. By offering your support you will be helping to protect the precious green spaces from being lost forever.

If you wish to support the campaign please donate to the Crowd Justice Site.
