Tonbridge convoy heads to Kings Hill for vote to decide future of River Lawn

Lee Colyer

THE fate of River Lawn will be decided tonight [October 11] when Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council’s Cabinet convenes at its Kings Hill office.
The six-person body will debate whether to sell the land beside the Medway to private developers for the construction of private housing.
The council’s constitution is unusual in that major decisions – such as the sale of public land – are not taken by Full Council.
There has been widespread public protest about the plans over the last nine months led by the protest group Keep River Lawn Green [KRLG].
There will be car-pooling for local people who wish to attend the meeting. The convoy leaves from River Lawn at 6pm and residents are advised to meet at Kings Hill by 7pm.
The meeting starts at 7.30pm with the item ‘To Consider Objections to Statutory Notice in respect of Disposal of Open Space Land at River Lawn Road’ first on the agenda.
KRLG held a Conker -Championship on Sunday at River Lawn – which features mature horse chestnut trees – with the winner crowned ‘Conkerer of Tonbridge’.
