White Horse Stone under attack!!

| May 16, 2006 | 0 Comments

Greetings All

I have the disturbing news to bring you that the White Horse stone has once again come under attack by the mobile phone company Orange. I received the following e-mail from a local lady and friend of the OR.

Hi Asrad,

Disturbing news today. Orange has put in an application for a phone mast on
the other side of the track and moved it a bit towards the bridge. I still
feel it disturbs the White Horse Stone.

The have submitted this to Maidstone Council and have not mentioned that
they have been turned down in this area before by Tonbridge & Malling.. I
have not seen the application, I was given brief details today and
apparently there are signs posted near the bridge. It appears to be about
27ft high with a lot of ancillary buildings. As you will remember the actual
site was hard to ascertain last time as they used the address on the A229
and said it was to the east of that address. we have informed Maidstone
planning department of the previous application and reasons for it being
dismissed. I hope you can mobilise your members to ensure they are not
allowed to spoil the area around the stone.
The planning application number is MA/06/0792/N I don’t as yet have the
contact details of the planning officer dealing with this case.

We will of course keep eveyone informed of the details and I will post details of where and who to send your objections.

Let battle commence!
