The request was successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

In reference to the proposed development(s) of 2,000 houses, a retirement village and a nursery that are either under discsussion or submitted under the "Call for Sites" scheme with Maidstone Borough Council, for the land at "north of Marden, Maidstone Road, Marden, Kent". The site of this proposal(s) is adjacent to the London > Coast mainline railway, as well as Marden railway station (MRN).

I am requesting in regards to this proposal:
a) A copy of all email communications between yourselves and the Proposers (DHA Planning, McCarthy & Stone Developments, Countryside Properties PLC), between January 2018 and today;
b) A summarised report of any feedback for this proposal, and
c) Correspondence related to any development of Marden Railway Station, its land or the bridges or railway owned by you within Marden parish, directly related to this proposal.

I am making this request under the EIR as it clearly involves the potential development of land and under the Regulations most exceptions are also subject to the public interest test.

Yours faithfully,

David Windham
