Update on the Covers Farm infill application

Covers Farm Infill decision likely 10th November 2021

The KCC Planning Applications Committee is likely to make a decision on KCC/SE/0495/2018, Stabilisation/Restoration of Covers Farm Sandpit, at their meeting on 10th November. Please note that this date is later than the one announced in the Brasted parish magazine, the Brasted Diary.

The application will involve 84,200 four-axle tipper trucks bringing infill material from the south-east London area. There will be further lorries involved in creating the earth bunds required for the project. The project is estimated to last six years.

Residents in north Westerham, parents of children at Churchill Primary School, residents of Brasted, Sundridge and Biggin HIll will no doubt have their concerns with regard to the potential harmful effects of the proposal in terms of air quality, noise, vibration and the impact on residential amenity and the local highways.
