Maidstone's Planning Committee have approved plans for Woodcut Farm.
12 Dec 2017
Woodcut Farm plan on former KIG site near Junction 8 approved. There will be an extensive office, warehouse and light industrial development at Woodcut Farm near Junction 8 of the M20, after Maidstone's planning committee approved an outline application from Roxhill Developments.
With parish councils and visiting ward councillors queueing up to speak against the scheme in a debate that lasted two hours and 50 minutes, approval was not given easily.
Around 50 members of the public were in the gallery to hear the debate, and councillors arriving at the Town Hall were greeted with a picket of placard-waving protesters.
The site is located in Kent, east of Maidstone, just south of Junction 8 of the m20 and covers 19ha.
