Rye Councillors Throw Out Building Plan for Tilling Green

Our Elected Councillors Do Their Best – But Their Objections will be overuled

By Jim Hollands

Well done Rye Town Council for objecting to the Tilling Green ‘money spinning building plan’ – Pity it will make no difference – Rye Town Council have only advisory powers – And the ‘Power of Well-Being’ – whatever that is.

There should be no building there at all – Leave the old school in the capable hands of the people of Tilling Green as a VIABLE Community Centre and recreational grounds for the 2000 plus people who live on the estate.

When it comes to money it’s “Never Mind the Quality, Feel the Width” and “Pack them in and Build them High”. The quality of life does not come into it when there is money at stake.

If ┬áRother are short of housing they should convert the De la Warr into flats! Use your own assets – NOT OURS. Rye Partnership are not blameless in this affair either. They should be supporting the people of Tilling Green, not selling them down the river.

Waste of time me writing this – It’s all cut and dried – But Rother, County and Rye Partnership, don’t say you were not warned when the floods come.
