Adam Holloway MP, Cllr Bryan Sweetland and the Lower Thames Crossing Association continue to oppose this decision.
We will support any legal challenge that may result through the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England, who are investigating, and will be working with other Parish Councils and action groups in Kent and Essex to pursue this.
GBC has not as yet said that it will pursue a legal challenge to this decision, but we would urge anyone concerned about how this will affect their property to write or contact their elected GBC Councillor to ask them what they intend to do and say in any forthcoming meetings with Highways England.
The Parish Council will seek to engage in all discussions about the route and mitigations and environmental protections that can be put in place. Our message is:-
- No junction on the A226;
- Extend the tunnels south of the A226;
- Maximum cut and cover
- This will not cure Dartford – a new crossing will still be needed.
