Action Alert: Housing Against Nightingales – No Way!

As an update on the Lodge Hill campaign, Medway Council agreed planning permission for the Lodge Hill Development, completing ignoring the wishes of local people and the evidence based advice of RSPB. So much for consultation! Please respond as advised in this blog. Thank you.

The opening paragraph in the Ecologist’s article:

A 5,000-house development has just won planning permission on a SSSI nature area in Kent which is home to over 1% of the UK’s nightingales. It violates government planning policies, and ministers have the power to stop it. But will they? Yes they will, writes Martin Harper – provided enough people show they care!

Please show your support for the nightingales and the Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) by asking Eric Pickles to call in the decision.  If you live in the constituency of Rochester and Strood, please also contact Mark Reckless, MP and ask him to help persuade Eric Pickles to call in the decision.  Thank you.

  1. Should read “completely ignoring the wishes of local people” – couldn’t find how to edit the typo.
