I wish to present a petition brought by the Five Parishes Opposition Group and others in my constituency against the Kent science park proposals. I wholeheartedly support the group and its allies, and I have secured three Adjournment debates on this subject. The total number of signatures is 3,200.
The petition states:
The Petition of the members of the 5 Parishes Opposition Group and others,
Declares that the petitioners object to any planning proposal by the Kent Science Park that seeks permission for either one or all of the following: to expand the site beyond the existing security boundary; to build any number of houses on green fields; to construct an A2-M2 road link; and to undertake any other affiliated building works.
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government not to permit the extension of the Kent Science Park beyond its current footprint.
To lie upon the Table.
