Maidstone needs more housing!

Maidstone needs more housing!

 

Week in week out we have yet another story of someone not happy about housing being built here or there. I think some people have lost total perspective of the situation we are facing. I like many others don’t want Maidstone to lose all its green fields and surroundings. There are key sites we must protect all across the Borough for various different reasons.  Presently all these sites face the risk of development due to Maidstone Borough Councils failure to put a local plan in place, in fact its already over four years late!

However I and many others young people need some where to live. This is proven by the much talked about 18,600 housing need figure. This figure has not been plucked out of thin air but is the independently proven housing need calculated by the set methodology . Do we really want to force young people born and bread in Maidstone out of the Borough because we didn’t build enough houses for the next generation? I hope not but unfortunately many people have already been forced out.
