Planning Application – Hendy Motor Village

The Parish Council strongly object to the 7 car dealership motor village proposed next to the Tesco site off the A228/A264 Pembury Road.  In order to strengthen their objections against the proposals they commissioned a specialist transport consultant to review the transport assessment.  A copy of the assessment and additional response to the planning application can be found below:
