Covers Farm Planning Application

Posted on Nov 8, 2018

 The application to restore the Squerryes Sandpit has been released for consultation.  This is a very weighty document in which the major argument is that the pit (now a deep lake) must be filled in by importing by road via Biggin Hill or via Brasted and Sundridge to Beggars Lane 800,000 cubic meters of infill. From the Beggars Lane roundabout some 200 lorries a day would travel along a haul road, to be constructed between London and Croydon Road.  The project is expected to take some 6 years.

Your Council is examining the detail, will be taking professional advice and will be seeking to establish that any work found to be needed is the minimum necessary and is carried out with the minimum disruption to Westerham and its neighbours.  As well, we will keep you informed.

The consultation closing date is 7th December 2018.  For details go to:
