Hello There

We Are
Keep Kent Green

Please act now to save our greenbelt and protect our village communities and wildlife!

Under regulation 19 of the Kent Mineral Sites plan, only 2 ‘sand and gravel’ sites have been selected for mineral extraction for at least the next 20 years! These potential quarry sites will have a devastating effect on our wildlife and surrounding countryside.

If these quarry sites are approved for planning permission our village communities and precious countryside will suffer severe and irreversible impacts for us and many future generations.

If you live in Golden Green, Hadlow, East Peckham, Tonbridge, Capel, Five Oak Green, Whetsted, Pembury, Paddock Wood, Teston, Yalding, or any other surrounding areas, this vast quarrying development will impact you.

We will see massive scale environmental impacts to our villages causing damage including:

  • Increase in flood risk, severe dust, noise, light and air pollution as well as potential pollution to the River Medway,
  • Massive increase in HGV traffic transporting millions of tons of sand and gravel through our villages on local roads.
  • Huge loss of wildlife, habitats and biodiversity
  • Massive scale environmental impact with no positive benefits to the community.
Please refer to the steps above to see how you can help save our greenbelt and Keep Kent Green!
