Can you give our new boards a good home?

Dec 3, 2020

We have a fresh new set of Save Capel boards available to anyone who has a prominent position where they can grab people’s attention in and around the Capel Parish!

This latest batch are single sided and 100cm wide by 60cm high and are free to a good home!

And this time we have also produced boards designed specifically to highlight the impact the developments planned for Capel will have in the Tonbridge area. If you or someone you know is in Tonbridge, and are concerned about the potential for increased traffic, pollution and flooding risk, we’d love to see the campaign’s trademark purple and green spread through our neighbouring borough.

To request either of the designs, please email the team at, let us know where you are, and we will be in touch to arrange to get a board to you.

Your donation could make the difference. Please help us Save Capel

So, Conservative members of the Planning and Transportation Cabinet Advisory Board fell in line with their leader, with a vote of 7/ 4 in favour of approving the draft Local Plan. Once again they are forging ahead against the wishes of 1000s of constituents. Sounds familiar?

Tonight TWBC Planning and Transportation Cabinet Advisory Board meet to approve the draft Pre-submission Local Plan. SaveCapel will be there highlighting the flaws and asking them to take more time to properly assess alternatives. Listen in at

Yesterday Capel Parish Council voted unanimously to support, in principle, the Castle Hill alternative to Tudeley village. Today we have written to @TWellsCouncil to request an urgent meeting to call for its consideration as part of the draft local plan.

Help @savecapel and have a cup of tea! @ReginaldAmes has donated a selection of different branded Tudeley Tea’s to help us fight the TWBC Local Plan. ALL proceeds from the sale of this tea go directly to the campaign. For details go to SaveCapel photo

We must hope that TWBC grasps the nettle to reinvent Tunbridge Wells - there is certainly a lot of work to do there - instead of its current plan to bulldoze Capel and start again!

A bit long, but an interesting read, which explains the flawed thinking behind the need for so many new houses in England and probably TWBCs ill-thought-out response with its draft Local Plan
