Request for communications

The request was partially successful.

Dear Maidstone Borough Council,

In reference to the "Land north of Marden, Maidstone Road" garden settlement proposals. Freedom of Information request EIR 7867 contains the attachment "Attachment Plans from KCC Meeting 15 February.pdf" which confirms the land ownership of the proposed site. Therefore I am requesting that you send me all pertinent email communications related to this development including:

Copies of emails sent by or received by Maidstone Borough Council planning agents (“Planning Department”) and EACH of the following:
in regards to this proposal between 1st January 2018 and the date of this request.

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

Yours faithfully,

David Windham
