BADGERS MOUNT DEVELOPMENT/PLANNING UPDATE
KCC Mineral and Waste Sites Development Plan [Archive]
Ex MOD Depot in Shacklands Road (Site 8)
and Land off the A224 at Hewitts Roundabout (Site 104)
KCC Mineral and Waste Sites Development Plan - there are
two proposed sites in Badgers Mount.
*GOOD NEWS!* BOTH the Badgers Mount proposed sites have been removed from the preferred site options.
SITE 104: NOT ALLOCATED! [KCC link]
LAND BETWEEN ORPINGTON BYPASS AND M25, SEVENOAKS
Reasons for not allocating site:
"This site is in the Kent Downs AONB and the Green Belt. The identified need can be met from the development of sites which are not constrained by national policy."
Proposal: Biomass facility (waste wood incinerator) - CD Waste Management Limited.
"This area of land has been put forward for use as a biomass facility which would use waste wood to generate electricity. The material would arise from a range of sources included Commercial & Industrial and Municipal Solid Waste, 60% of which would be sourced from Kent."
LINK: KCC Consultation for SITE 104
The site entrance is directly opposite the Welcome to Kent -Garden of England sign near Hewitts roundabout on the A224.
Use the 'Site 104' link above to read submitted comments - Deadline for comments ended on the 19th December 2011.
Biomass Proposal: BBC Radio Kent interview.
Ben Croucher talks to some local residents and committee members about the proposed incinerator. The original BBC radio news item was broadcast on the 5th March 2012
NOT ALLOCATED! [KCC link]
CHELSFIELD AMMUNITION DEPOT - SHACKLANDS ROAD, BADGERS MOUNT, SEVENOAKS
Reasons for not allocating the site:
"This site consists of previously developed land within the Green Belt and the Kent Downs AONB. Sufficient capacity for Aggregate Recycling to meet the need requirements in the Core Strategy can be obtained from allocating sites which are not in either the Green Belt or the AONB and there is no need to allocate this site."
