In summary, Capel, has one Councillor, who voted against the proposal, pitching against 46 from other wards. Capel has 2% of the population of the Borough and has been allocated 44.5% of the total housing need for TWBC.
If we add in Paddock Wood, that gives five Councillors pitching against 42 others, a joint population of 8.8% of the Borough and 65.6% of the total housing need for TWBC.
A total and disproportionate nonsense.
We now need to focus on the Regulation 19 Consultation, which will be chaired by an independent Inspector appointed by the Government. Let us hope that the Inspector listens to reason more than the TWBC Councillors have!
