Hollamby Estates publishes the results from its public consultation held in March and April

9 May 2014

More than 450 people attended Hollamby Estate’s public exhibitions on its emerging proposals for new homes, jobs and community facilities and the delivery of the Herne Relief Road at the Strode Farm site near Herne, which it has called ‘Lower Herne Village’. 

Chris Crook of Bidwells, on behalf of Hollamby Estates, said: 

“We were very pleased to see so many local people come to the exhibition and share their views on our emerging proposals. One of the issues which emerged was the importance of getting the Herne Relief Road right and we are committed to this. 

“Quite a few residents told us that they didn’t agree with Canterbury City Council’s proposals for 3000 more homes in the Herne Bay area – but many could see we were responding to that identified need. 

“We are aware that local residents have concerns about the impact of development on existing community facilities, and we will be looking at how we can best respond to that ready for when we come back again. 

“We will now consider all the feedback received and use it to develop a masterplan which we will present later in the year at a further consultation event”. 

Following the exhibitions Hollamby Estates received over 170 forms which comprised a questionnaire and a space for respondents to provide general comments about the emerging proposals.
