New fire station will be an eyesore say villagers

Residents of Butler's Place have set up a campaign on Facebook to oppose the site of the neighbouring new station. The site has been owned by Kent County Council has owned for many years, and they had previously got planning permission in 1994 for a fire station there, as the area's need for better fire cover has long been recognised. Campaigners claim they are not against a fire station in New Ash Green, but want it built elsewhere. The proposed station is said to be taller than their houses, in reply the Fire Authority offer to look at design, screening and to buy play equipment. Some comments critical of the campaign on the News Shopper website.
