Yet another move for housing in Bapchild

The relentless torrent of housing proposals for land surrounding the village of Bapchild should be rights have ceased all together for the time being.

However, with Swale Borough Council on the cusp of officially adopting the Local Plan one developer appears not to have heard the news and is pursuing a brand new proposal on land that has literally just been rejected by a government inspector during the course of a public inquiry.

Quite why APM Services Ltd have chosen to bring forward this proposal at this time is something of a mystery as the chances of gaining planning permission on this particular site right now are pretty much non-existent.

To correct the confusion of the materials supplied, this proposal is not on Fox Hill and sits between and behind Bapchild Court and Morris Court Farm.
