- January 2012 BMRA Newsletter -


Belated happy New Year wishes to you all!



Committee members will be calling on you shortly for 2011/2012 subscriptions, which remain at 1 per adult with a maximum payable of 2 per house this year.

Annual General Meeting

This will take place on Thursday, 10th May in the Memorial Hall, Highland Road. Further details will be given in our April newsletter but please put this on your calendar. New committee members are always welcome and if you would like to consider joining us please contact our Chairman, Eric (535171), secretary Tracey (534471) or get in touch via the website for further information.


Carols Evening

The pre-Christmas Carols celebration was enjoyed by all those who attended.

New Years Eve Party

The Barn Dance, organised by special request following success in the previous year, was enjoyed by the small number of people who attended. We hope that if another New Year party is organised this year, more people will take advantage of this very enjoyable occasion that is within walking distance of home.

Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations

In conjunction with the Halstead village celebrations that you have been notified of already, BMRA are proposing to hold their own event in the afternoon of Saturday, 2nd June 2012 in the Memorial Hall, Highland Road. Arrangements are being finalised as we write this and will be detailed in our April newsletter and on the website in due course. Amongst the ideas suggested are an afternoon tea party, games and fancy dress for children and a ‘street party’/barbeque. If you have any ideas, comments or would like to assist us with this please get in touch with Eric or Tracey as advised earlier in this newsletter.


We are aware of the concerns of Badgers Rise residents following implementation of the pay and display parking outside of Knockholt Station. SDC will be reviewing the effects of this scheme shortly and we have written to make residents feelings known. We will advise on the outcome of this in due course.


Notice Boards

Three new notice boards have been ordered for Badgers Mount. Two will be installed in the wooden bus shelters in Old London Road and the third in Highland Road shortly. These will provide an additional source of village information. Please remember to check for notices regularly.

Parish Council Meetings

Badgers Mount has three Councillors on Shoreham Parish Council. Dates and venues of Council meetings can be found on the Parish Council notice board at the top of the Foxs Garage footpath or on the Shoreham Parish Council website, a link is provided from our own website to this. It would be good to see more Badgers Mount residents at these meetings. There is always a public question time session and you can also comment on individual planning applications during the Planning Committee meetings.

Salt Bins

These have been replenished in anticipation of bad weather but so far have not been needed. The salt is provided for use on roads, not private driveways.

Broadband Survey

There is a link from our website to a KCC Broadband Survey which SPC have asked as many residents to complete as possible. Please see for further details. Vote for faster broadband


View latest Badgers Mount Planning Applications...The garage has a new owner who has applied for planning permission to give the building a complete facelift to use it for car sales and servicing. You can view details of this application on the SDC planning portal. Neither the Residents Association nor SPC are objecting to this application as it is felt that this will be a great improvement on the existing building.


Kent Highways will shortly be reducing the speed limit on the A224 between the Polhill and Morants Court Roundabouts (the Dunton Green end of Polhill) to 50 miles per hour in the interests of safety.


We would respectfully remind residents that the speed limit on village unadopted roads (Highland Road, Badgers Road, Johnsons Avenue & Milton Avenue) is 20 miles per hour. It is noted that a number of drivers ignore this.


Public Inquiry

More than 30 very concerned residents attended the Inquiry hearing held earlier this month in the SDC Council Chamber. The Inquiry Inspector indicated that his decision will be known by the week commencing 5th March 2012. The BMRA sub-committee have worked extremely hard to put forward a strong case against F M Conway Ltd’s appeal application.

If you would like to know more about the Inquiry proceedings please attend the Drop In Surgery that the sub-committee are holding in the Memorial Hall on FRIDAY, 27TH JANUARY between 7.00 and 8.30 pm.

A full update on our two village sites within the KCC Minerals & Waste Development Framework Consultation, and other applications in relation to the Chelsfield Ammunition Depot will be advised shortly in a separate newsletter.
