Gladman Day 4

March 16, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Gladman, Friday, day 4.
The day started with the Borough’s housing supply to 2022 ending with cross examination by Gladman’s barrister. This ended at 2.47pm.
CPRE Kent then took centre stage with our Colin Burns talking on transport and highways issues, these included footpaths, unworkable schemes of traffic management, visibility at the entrance of the site at Eastlands, speed of traffic and the major risk of fatalities. Colin was on top of the subject and was well capable of the cross-examination that followed. Colin highlighted the inaccuracy in the ABC readings as they had used an American measurement to reach their results. Colin though had obviously put a lot of time into his presentation. He didn’t think much of the Gladman documents prepared for the Appeal or their figures either.
Our Chair of PC Jill Leyland came next with more on highways matters including the traffic counts and 3 CCTV cameras we had fitted in and around Station Road and the results from them. At cross-examination Jill and Colin worked together and did us proud. Throughout their presentations they were well supported by Richard Knox-Johnstone who is to be thanked for his support. The cross-examination ended at 5.15pm.
Jill and Colin are both to be congratulated for their professional work. The process continues on Tuesday morning at 10.00. Please come and support us.
