Debate over 120,000 new homes in Kent

Housing plans build Kent passions

Any discussion about the future of Kent and the preservation of its character tends to boil down to one central issue: housing. The subject inevitably polarizes opinion and often pits business interests against community ideals. One man caught in the middle of the debate is Nick Sharp, site director of Kent Science Park.

  • It’s so sad to see the garden of England slowly becoming the car park of England. At what point will so-called economic “progress” give-up, when the last vestige of green disappears. Please politicians realise that there are more important things than money.

  • Regionalism is a (the only?) solution. If the SE is so overheated why not encourage economic development in other parts of the UK? London has a very self-centred view, and those that make the decisions are also tainted by this view. Of course politically it is difficult to move Government departments around the country, but by using its financial muscle and offering other sweeteners it can, if it wants, get some of the economic activity away from London.

    I do get the feeling that London thinks it is too important to let anyone else do it. Fine by me, I hate going to London, but for the good of the country it would make loads of sense to distribute the economic activity around. Still, when it means that your job is probably not going to be near Harrods or the West End I can see that sense goes out of the window.

    (Who actually *wants* to live in London? I lived there for four years and it is a dump.)

  • Cstan – if the current situation where we have so many single person homes then yes, we do need more houses. However, at least 3 workmates have had their children move back home over the past year. Combine that with the increase in weddings and more stringent second home laws and we may well see a more efficient use of the housing stock …. in which case we have plenty of houses.
