Fawkham Manor Planning Application – Fawkham Parish Council’s Response

Fawkham Parish Council is not against the principle of the re-development of the Fawkham Manor Hospital site, nor the replacement of the hospital wings, however, we have various issues with the proposals presented which cause us to object to this planning application in its current form. These objections concern the proposed design of the replacement buildings, car parking arrangements, traffic including vehicle movement modelling, access arrangements, number of units proposed and s106 and CIL contributions. Each of these is expanded upon in our response to Fawkham Manor Planning Application, which can also be seen, alongside other responses, here: Sevenoaks District Council Planning Portal. We previously submitted an application for the listing of Fawkham Manor, and have asked Sevenoaks DC to consider waiting for the outcome of that before making a decision on the planning application.
