This case is raising funds for its stretch target. Your pledge will be collected within the next 24-48 hours (and it only takes two minutes to pledge!)

East Malling & Larkfield Parish Council, with support from other local Parish Councils, is crowdfunding for its campaign to extend the Green Belt to protect land between East Malling and West Malling, including the agricultural fields at Forty Acres and Broadwater Farm. The extension will protect the setting of the historic market town of West Malling and prevent East Malling and West Malling joining up with Kings Hill in the south and Larkfield and Leybourne in the north in one large conurbation (see map below). 

The planning application for 250 homes at Forty Acres is at a critical stage.  We need your support to help meet the costs of challenging that planning application and for obtaining legal advice and representation for the Local Plan hearings before the Planning Inspectorate in the autumn.

Whether you can spare £5, £10, £50 or more, all funds donated will be gratefully received and will help us fight to protect our countryside for the future.

The cost of seeking legal advice and representation at the Local Plan hearing is expected to be more than £50,000.  By offering your support you will be helping us to protect our precious green spaces from being lost forever.

So please help us by:

- Pledging whatever you can afford to our support our campaign

- Sharing this page NOW with friends, family, colleagues and anyone else you can think of! Popular ways to do this are via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and by email word of mouth!

- Continuing to support the refusal of the Forty Acres application. 

- Following us on our Facebook page ‘East Malling Campaign to Extend the Green Belt including Forty Acres’ which we will use to share information regarding the new TMBC Committee date for the Forty Acres planning application and the Local Plan hearings.

Thank you for support.
