Correspondence about the M25

Various parts of the Covers Farm infill application (KCC/SE/0495/2018) refer to the notion that failure of the northern slope could threaten the M25 Motorway.

However, you can read below correspondence with Highways England, the agency that oversees the strategic network, including the M25, which indicates that at least until very recently, they had no record of a risk posed by the northern slope of the Covers Farm quarry to the carriageway of the motorway.
