Michael joined residents in Westerham on Friday to protest against the application for the redevelopment of Moorhouse Tileworks.

Accompanied by local councillors, campaigners and Sam Gyimah, MP for East Surrey, Michael listened to concerns and reaffirmed his opposition to the application to build a major distribution depot on the site.

Michael has already written to Tandridge District Council to oppose the plans, which would increase the number of vehicles, including vans and HGVs, and negatively affect air quality and pedestrian safety in the Westerham area.

Michael said: “Like the last application, this plan fails to address concerns about traffic and air quality.  It would have a significant impact on the lives of my constituents in Westerham and I was proud to join local residents to make our opposition clear.  I urge the council not to approve this development.”

Mr Fallon spent the remainder of his day in the constituency attending a fundraising event for West Kent Mind and meeting local councillors to discuss development plans and the latest progress on securing grammar school provision for boys in Sevenoaks.
