Airport Cafe Statement

An Open letter from Patrick Breen,  Airport Cafe.

Hello all Sellindge residents,

As you may now all be aware we are opening the Otterpool site to park lorries which are both affecting our business and the village. We hope with this overflow area it will prevent lorries going into the village and also parking all over our customer car park when we are closed.

The parking at the rear of the cafe is nothing to do with myself or Julie and is run by Julie's brother. Our parking area is only up to the blue barrels in the car park.

The original plans for the recycling plant are not going ahead, so we are renting the site from Countrystyle. We are not in any partnership with Countrystyle and are just trying to have some control as if anyone else takes over we will have no say in what happens.

If anyone wishes to speak with us on any issues they are more than welcome.

We have been in touch with Shepway planning dept regarding this. We do not intend to develop the site but just use the existing surface. The site will have security, toilets, cameras and should prevent drivers using the roadside in the village as a toilet.

Better to have a controlled site with facilities. This should be a much better use with less lorry impact than the waste plant.

Patrick Breen.

We have just learned that the application for the wood burning power station is now live. It is now official that should the power station be built, our areas will become blighted, our property values will dramatically fall (that's if they are able to be sold). 
For those of you who may think this is a charcoal burner style of power station in a sleepy backwater of the villages - THINK AGAIN. ---  THIS IS THE SIZE OF DUNGENESS.... Watch this space for more information regarding a public meeting and 'people action'.
