My name is Janet Mattews. I am standing for election as parish councillor.
I have lived in Sellindge for 23 years. I have three sons who attended Sellindge Primary school over the years. I am head gardener for a small estate in Lympne, and care passionately about the environment.
I am a member of the Sellindge Village Hall Committee, supporting the maintenance, upkeep and running of the hall for others to use for village clubs, outside clubs and functions. I was also a founder volunteer along with others in the setting up of a village youth club four years ago.
I believe supporting, where I can, village views and concerns on village issues, whether it be development, traffic, pot holes or any other issues people have, however big or small.

A brief itinerary of the changes so far is listed below.
Please send any quires and suggestions to:
New header, side bar has been refined into simple tabs:

site navigation more streamlined. Click on any tab once to view.

It’s recently come to our notice that a gang of tarmac layers are offering their services in carrying out work on householder’s drives.
Needless to say, this gang is targeting the old and vulnerable and ripping them off; not just overcharging by hundreds of pounds, but by thousands.
If you are approached by this gang, have nothing to do with them, but try to get their truck registration number and telephone the police. If you suspect that a friend or neighbour is being targeted by this gang please do the same.

61 Metre Turbine Appeal.
On the 11th December 2012, Shepway Development Control Committee
debated the Single turbine application proposed by Windberry
Operations on Farmer Price's land. The whole committee had no
hesitation in throwing it out. Windberry Operations have now appealed
against the SDC decision. You now have the chance to make further
comments but please be brief, to the point and should be made
before midnight, 4th March, 2013.
Important points to be made should be : The turbine impacts AONB
landscape, both viewing from AONB and into (as backdrop) AONB land.
All members of the Development Control Committee opposed the
application with one Councillor citing Mrs Justice Laing's comments
that 'Wind turbines shouldn't take precedence over natural beauty'.
Comments made should be 'material planning considerations'.
Please go to the planning portal website:
The link should work, but if not, put in: www.planningportal.gov.uk
and then follow it through to "search for cases", then put in the
search box the reference 2191109. At the bottom of the page is the
link for making comments. Away you go.
All the best.
Les Barratt, Co Chairman. Sellindge & District Residents Association.
