    Lib Dems have campaigned for more than a decade for an additional waste recycling centre to reduce chronic pressure on the road network in South Maidstone. The existing site at Tovil is beyond capacity and serves as the only facility in the whole of the borough for residents as far as Lenham, Allington, Yalding and Staplehurst.

    South ward councillors complete tree planting scheme at Mangravet Recreation Field with Oaks Academy School
    Maidstone Bough Councillors Brian Clark, Derek Mortimer and Paul Wilby have worked with the Maidstone Borough Council Parks team and a charity in Kent to deliver a large tree planting scheme at Mangravet Playing Field to further enhance the site, valued locally as an important "Green Wedge" and wildlife corridor. Cllr Clark had initiated the scheme after contacting Alun Griffiths, chairman of the charity "Kent Men of the Trees", which provides trees for the community, asking for help in providing several large native Oak, Hornbeam and Rowan "feature" trees. The request was rewarded with a contribution of twelve double standard sized trees (four of each species).

    Lib Dems seek National Protection for Greensand Ridge and Maidstone borough's "Landscapes of Local Value" sites

    Lib Dem Maidstone Borough Councillor Brian Clark has successfully gained cross party support for a proposal to strengthen the "Landscape of Local Value" sites identified in Maidstone's Local Plan, and progress a Lib Dem initiative spearheaded by Cllr Tony Harwood to gain "Area of National Beauty" (ANOB) designation for the wildlife rich Greensand Ridge. At November's Strategic Planning and Sustainable Transport (SPST) committee meeting, Maidstone Council officers recommended that the committee consider AONB 'sub-tier' protection for the Greensand Ridge but Cllr Clark, in seeking to progress his group's determination to gain greater countryside protection, proposed that the borough instead seek full ANOB status for site.

    We do not normally respond to Conservative negative literature, but always keep you advised on what has been achieved and what campaigns are ongoing. However, in this case the information given in their recent leaflet is so misleading we really have no choice.

    The problem of congestion in South Maidstone has been an ongoing problem for many years and while progress has been made in relation to design proposals along the A229 from Cripple Street down to Armstrong Road, including the bottleneck at the Wheatsheaf Junction, and also the Willington Street Junction on the A274, nothing has been finalised by KCC who have the overall responsibility for highways in Kent. The Conservatives recently voted to delay the proposals for Willington Street junction and then cancelled the next joint Transport Board where the changes were supposed to be discussed again.

    Maidstone Borough Council is to formally write to the Prime Minister requesting that the voting age be lowered to 16, following a motion raised in the town hall by Liberal Democrat Councillors Brian Clark (South Ward) and Georgia Harvey (Bridge Ward). This follows the success of a similar motion at Kent County Council proposed by Cllr Clark when he served as a county councillor.

  • Cllr Brian Clark at Loose Girl Guides 2017
    Article: Nov 21, 2017

    Last week Cllr Brian Clark was invited to talk to the Loose 2nd Girl Guides for democracy week which was similar to one I gave to year 6's at Park Way school previously.

    Brian took a few key points and dates - Magna Carta and various voting acts which widened the right to vote firstly for men, then women after WW1 and the current debate about voting at 16. I planned to take no more than 20 minutes but the girls had lots of questions it ended up being 40 minutes (we ended on a light note with a for their favourite pop star complete with ballot slips and a ballot box - it was clear (aside from the call for Ed Sheeran for PM), that these girls were very interested in the world around them.

    Maidstone Local Plan

    (framework for development to 2031)

    Town Hall Vote 25th October 2017

    Dear Fellow Residents

    You may be aware that there has been much debate in the local press recently about the Local Plan and the level of housing proposed. Unfortunately, a process imposed by Whitehall determines this level and, going forward, councils without an adopted Local Plan will likely see significantly increased housing numbers (based on a government housing consultation announced in September). In light of this, we did not agree with the recent attempt to "call-in" our Local Plan to the secretary of state for reconsideration, and are pleased that the home secretary has decided not to intervene.
