Statement to voters

    Hi Everybody, I'm Louis Westlake, and I'm running as an Independent to represent Kings Hill in Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council.

    Full statement



    Some of you may know me, some of you may have voted for me back in May, but I'm here again to ask for your support.

    I'm running on three, common-sense proposals. I want to stop the Broadwater Farm housing development, the Land South of Clearheart Lane development and to make sure our bins are collected on time.
    I've lived in Kings Hill for 13 years, and I'm proud to call the Hill my home, but there are proposals coming which threaten our way of life. In Kings Hill we are surrounded by areas of natural beauty, and the two aforementioned developments are coming to ruin this.

    The Broadwater Farm proposal is a poorly thought out plan which will wreak havoc for Kings Hill's residents. The roads will become congested, a beautiful area of land will be lost, and our services will become over burdened with the influx of new residents. It is not an understatement to say that this will completely alter our way of life, and that we have a duty to combat this. If elected, I will tackle this head on and fight this egregious proposal.

    The land South of Clearheart Lane has a special meaning to me, it is an area of immense beauty in Kings Hill and has stood for decades before Kings Hill was even conceived of. In Spring, the land South of Clearheart Lane becomes home to a beautiful field of Bluebells as far as the eye can see, and it's a real area of quiet contemplation in an otherwise busy town. Below I've attached some photos I took there last year to show how truly beautiful that area is. Under new proposals, this land will be paved over and replaced with 65 dwellings, but it is my commitment that as your Councillor I will fight tooth and nail to prevent this from happening.

    Lastly, we've all had to suffer through issues with waste collection thanks to the complacency and incompetence of the current council. They've told us this is because of the lack of HGV drivers, but our neighbours in Maidstone have had their collections on time. The truth is that TMBC chose a waste provider who haven't delivered, and we're footing the bill for it. In June 2021 there were over 1400 complaints of missed collection in Tonbridge and Malling alone. This isn't on, and as your Councillor I will ensure that the bins are collected on time, all the time, as it's the least we deserve.

    I thank everyone who's read this, and all I ask for is your support on the 9th December, and to come together to Save Kings Hill by voting for Louis Westlake
