The TMSTH Area Forum was setup for YOU, the local residents to air views, raise issues and attend meetings about the development of the area in which you live.

The area forum has a committee of local residents who meet on a regular basis.

If you would like to become a committee member e-mail:

The committee members organise public meetings which are currently held 3 times a year and these meetings give you the opportunity to discuss any local issues and listen to invited speakers. However, if you are unable to attend the meetings, you can still contact us to raise any concerns you may have.

Large-scale development proposed in Holdenhurst

The following link will take you to Richborough Estates website, showing their speculative proposal for large-scale housing development on Conservation Area land in Holdenhurst.

This is not a planning application but forms part of an attempt to convince BCP to alter protective designations - i.e. Conservation Area, Green Belt - in the new Local Plan. The Local Plan is currently in development and further details of public consultation will be listed on our website.
