Why It Matters

Say NO to a "New Kingshill"

This development, if it goes ahead, WILL place massive pressure on infrastructure, create congestion, result in even more air pollution and impact railway services, sewerage & other utilities. Our roads are already clogged: 8-10,000 more car journeys a day would have a significant negative impact on the health and well-being of residents as well as other villages & towns nearby.

The village accepts that a certain amount of development must happen, evidenced by the construction of over 500 new houses since 2015. However, a plan on this massive scale is inappropriate for an historic village like Marden. It will become a new town, and will lose its special character forever.
