A Press Release Issued by Sellindge & District Residents Association highlights the reasons for the Anti-Establishment vote via Brexit and the American Presidential election. Who will vote for regimes that ride rough-shod over the views of their local electorate? It is claimed they are selling off our heritage to the highest bidder. There is no consideration for providing affordable housing for local young people.
Press Release issued by Sellindge & District Residents Association
A press release has been issued by Councillor Monk, Leader at Shepway District Council. It reads as if the Otterpool Town is a foregone conclusion or a done deal, but of course, it isn’t.
Councillor Monk says that he has met with various groups but didn’t actually mention the outcome. The local parish Councillors sent him off with a flea in his ear after taking a vote to have nothing to do with the Otterpool Town proposal.
It is obvious that Councillor Monk has been economical with the truth when expressing an interest to obtain Government funding for this ridiculous proposal whereby local support should be considered. Is this fraud?
The CPRE report on the building on brownfield sites carries weight and negates the need for using valuable agricultural land for housing. Shepway DC have chosen to ignore this well respected body and can only function, it appears, with Continue reading Residents to March Against Establishment Again

THE GREAT UNTRUTH Part 2.
You will recall our post of 13th August from a Monks Horton Parish Councillor telling of the ‘Great Untruth’ as performed by the Leader of Shepway District Council, David Monk on BBC Radio Kent.

Is this the same David Monk that constantly invites residents to contact him to raise points relating to the proposed 12,000 sprawl housing estate. Councillor Monk even stated clearly ‘on air’ for residents to speak with him.
The Great Untruth occurred when Councillor Monk stated that a question posed by Parish Councillor Les Barratt to 27 Parish Councillors at the Civic Centre took the form of ‘Who thought it was a bad idea to build a new town at Otterpool’. – No hands were raised. Continue reading Did District Council Leader David Monk Deceive the People of Kent?
A Newsletter from Sellindge & District Residents Association.
DEMOCRACY IN SHEPWAY IS DEAD.
It wouldn’t have escaped your notice that we have absolutely no official voice when it comes to ‘having our say’ in the way our communities and villages are shaped and developed in the future.
This week, our District Council, Shepway, revealed the content of the Expression of Interest’ document that has already been sent to central Government to develop a New Town of 12,000 houses. Prior to the ‘Expression of Interest’ being sent, the SDC Cabinet held a meeting on 8th June to vote on taking this development forward. It was no surprise to us that the vote was unanimous in favour. But isn’t this democracy working for the good of the residents? It would Continue reading Sellindge Village v Shepway District Council
