The meeting on Tuesday 6th June 2017, hosted by Otford Parish Council was well attended by councillors and residents from the parishes surrounding Northern Sevenoaks. Although there was no formal representative from Sevenoaks Town Council or Urban Initiatives Studio (the consultants who prepared the Masterplan), several STC councillors were also present. The meeting had four aims. To: · Report on the meeting held by Sevenoaks Town Council (STC) on 31st May, to brief councillors on the Masterplan · Hear comments from representatives of the neighbouring parish councils · Enable residents to express their views and concerns. · Discuss ways of working with STC to deal with the issues arising from the Masterplan. Those present agreed that there was a need for a plan - but that it had to be the right plan. The current draft of the Masterplan appeared to be impractical and STC needed help to deal with the infrastructure issues. A working group is being set up to continue these Otford Parish Council has formally requested that it should be included in that new group and it is expected that the other neighbouring parishes will also ask to be included. The full report of the meeting is attached to this post. You should also be able to obtain a printed copy from your local parish council office.
