Chaucer Fields Update

The Village Green Application (for the Southern Slopes as a whole) will be considered by Kent County Council in September this year. At that time, following the ongoing internal review of the evidence already gathered earlier this year, KCC will decide whether:
  •  to reject the Application (the outcome apparently expected  by University of Kent at Canterbury’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Keith Mander);
  •     to accept it (the ideal outcome for the community); or
  •     to launch a public enquiry (because more evidence is considered necessary to make a decision).
It seems likely that the third option may well be chosen, but we will have to wait until September to find out.
