For those who follow my website, you are aware of how fond I am of Princes Parade in Hythe
I had written an article for Cinques Ports Magazine a while back.
Since this article, more than 4000 people signed petitions, marched, protested, asking for the Council to abandon the planning of houses being built and a swimming pool at the cost of destroying the amazing wildlife that has been living there for decades.: Reptiles, birds, badgers, pheasants, maritime grassland and more, all to be destroyed! It has already started as they cannot wait to build.

Unfortunately, there has been a report concerning the toxicity of the site, mentioning the presence in high number of Asbestos, Cyanide and a lot more harmful components.
If the work goes ahead, people living nearby will be subject to receive the dust containing the harmful toxic.
In the first Lockdown, family and friends asked me where I was walking with my dog.
I sent this picture to them
I felt blessed to be able to walk in such peaceful environment with songs of the birds, the smell of fresh buds.
I would like you to find out what the council has already done of this area before to have the full permission to carry on with their appalling plans.
Fences have been erected where they are planning to build a new road!
Hell for our gorgeous corner.
However this afternoon I came back from my walk very positive.
A resident told me that NO developer could contemplate the price of removing or securing all the toxics found on the land before starting building on it.
Lets hope he is right!
