February 2022 update

Thank you to everyone who engaged with our consultation for the development of Land at Eccles.

We have received a lot of useful feedback during our consultation. We have been carefully considering and incorporating these comments and are pleased to let you know that we have now submitted an Outline Planning Application to Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council (TMBC). You can search for the planning application on the Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council planning portal using reference 22/00113/OAEA.

We were really pleased that so many people took time to look at our proposals, send us their comments and come along to our event. We have received a lot of useful feedback which we have been carefully considering. You can find more information about the submitted plans, as well as the ways in which your feedback has helped shaped them, within this newsletter.
