SUSPECTED BRIBERY PRESS RELEASE. (2)
Posted: 18 Dec 2016 05:29 AM PST
As promised, we said that we would bring you more details of a press release by Lydd Airport Action Group pertaining to suspected bribes being accepted by Shepway District Councillors.
If you are of the mind that SDC Councillors make a habit of voting against the wishes of local residents, as they are with the Lorry Park and Otterpool 12,000 housing estate, you wouldn’t be wrong.
It appears that they are running to form with the Airport fiasco as well. We’ll leave you to decide what the reason for that could be.
Here it be:

SOS Kent’s Survey Results Taken at Highway England Exhibition / Consultations
Survey highlights public anger over government’s Kent lorry park scheme
A survey about the government’s £250 million scheme to build a 250 acre lorry park in Kent shows huge public anger and opposition to the development.
90 per cent of respondents to a survey carried out by the SOS Kent campaign group declared themselves opposed to the multi-million pound scheme. Volunteers from the campaign captured the views of more than 80 per cent of those attending eight public exhibitions held in East Kent to present information about the development. SOS Kent opposes plans by the government and Highways England to build the lorry park just off the M20 at Stanford. The campaign group is calling for smarter options to resolve traffic problems caused by cross-Channel disruption and rejects the authorities’ claims the lorry park will solve Operation Stack.

They are Not Happy in the Villages
It seems that there is a large stirring of discontent in the hills and valleys around Sellindge and other villages near Hythe.
Hythe MP, Damian Collins, is coming under heavy criticism from many of his erstwhile supporters because he is apparently backing the building of a Lorry Park for over 3,000 Heavy Goods Vehicles and the construction of 12,000 houses on local green fields.
Many residents are so angry about his non interest in their protest movement, that has already conducted two massive marches to draw attention to their grievances, they have now turned on him with a direct plea for voters to remember his actions and vote him out the next time he stands for election.
The following has appeared in the latest Sellindge & District Residents Association Newsletter. Continue reading All for One and None for All
