“Hundreds of acres of land are to be compulsory purchased to allow for the building of a secondary school.” says Michael Owen a diary farmer at Berwick Farm, Lympne. The land owned by the Owen family has been a diary farm for over 50 years. It is now to make way for a Secondary School on the Otterpool Park site.
In his latest piece for Lympne Parish Newsletter to be published in the next few days, he goes onto say:
“On the 21st May FHDC published a newsletter – Your District Today (pictured) – in which there was no mention whatsoever that they are taking several hundreds of acres of good grade two land. Never a letter to the owners or a phone call. They want to build a secondary school on land they don’t own which involves pulling some houses etc down. FHDC own 370 acres, do those first!” he goes on to say “We elect Councillors, it would be nice if some of them stuck up for the electors. Let democracy reign. They think we will get used to thirty to forty thousand more population plus two cars per house. Like Brexit have a vote!”
