St Mary’s Abbey - West Malling

Impact of development plans

Over the past few weeks there has been a hearing to determine if up to 80 homes should be built on the field at the corner of Swan Street and Lavenders Road in West Malling, next to St Mary’s Abbey. I am concerned about this prospect. This is why I have asked that the Government intervene in this application, and make the decision rather than the Planning Inspector, if necessary. Although this only happens a handful of times each year, the impact on St Mary’s Abbey is clearly of huge significance considering its place within our community and the history of our nation.
