No Development on Prince's Parade
Dear David Monk, please confirm to the people of Hythe and the local community in Seabrook that you will reject any proposal to develop the site at Prince's Parade.
Why is this important?
The land is a protected piece of open land which allows exceptional vistas of Hythe and Shorncliffe and should not be developed. The current proposals of 150 residential flats and houses on the site will change the character of Hythe forever and will lead to the almost inevitable development of the adjacent golf course to a similar residential density.
The land at Princes Parade has been dredged, its been quarried, it’s been land filled, it successfully defended us against Napoleon, the Kaiser and Hitler, it protects us and our Ancient Scheduled Monument from the ravages of the sea and provides a unique habitat for wildlife. The land creates fantastic vistas of the surrounding hills, it is a protected open space, It has a recorded planning history which should make it undevelopable for residential purposes. Definitely worth fighting for!
How it will be delivered
We plan to deliver the petition to David Monk the leader of Shepway District Council ahead of the presentation of the final consultant's report on the consultation, likely to be in November 2016.
