One local councillor, Miss Roxanne Chesher-Brazier, has started a leaflet campaign to “Save the Island” against the building of new homes on Thanet (I originally wrote Westwood Cross by mistake). I was handed one of these this morning and it says:
“Say ‘No’ to developments of 4,000 homes”
“Say ‘No’ to depleting water supplies”
“Say ‘No’ to diminishing quality of air”
And of course, say ‘No’ to a “Rising Crime Rate” as an afterthought.
James Maskell correctly pointed out that the 4,000 homes figure is for the island as a whole, still too many I would have thought, given the present congestion problems we are seeing.
