Following the decision to call in the Lodge Hill planning decison, Conservative candidate for Rochester and Strood, Kelly Tolhurst has said;
”I have consistently campaigned with local Conservatives against the development at Lodge Hill and am delighted that it has been called in - giving us another opportunity to have it stopped.
Having grown up on the edge of the peninsula I know how important this area is, and I will continue to lead the campaign in the run up to the public inquiry helping to ensure the voice of local people is heard.
Mark Reckless has flip flopped on this important issue, standing up in Parliament to argue for it to go ahead, but I have always campaigned against it and always will.”
