Burglars can be caught

Contrary to popular opinion that most domestic burglaries go unsolved I am pleased to say that the scumbag who robbed us a year ago has been caught! The police were carrying a routine stop and search in Peckham and became suspicious. A search of the, ahem, gentlemans flat revealed some mobile phones.

Although much of the govt legislation in this arena may be construed as intrusive one thing they did is most useful. All mobile phone companies must keep records of the locations of mobiles for a year. The mobile just has to be on.

This means that when the police too a close look at scumbags phone they found that it had been to 42 properties on the exact time and date when house burglaries were carried out. One of those was our own dear Hernhill.

Yes 42 burglaries all around  the M25 in a stolen car.

Busted, and one can only hope that they put them in a very nasty jail

40 Acre site to be developed into Business Park, Housing Estate and Traveller Site

Residents may be aware that Swale Borough Council will shortly consider an application for the development of a large site on the eastern side of Love Lane in Faversham. The plan consists of a business park (comprising commercial units and 2,000sqm of offices), a 70 bed hotel, 196 dwellings, a pub / restaurant, a health centre and a “traveller site”. There will be a new access road created which will be opposite the cemetery. The site is formally within the countryside and is currently agricultural ground with no previous history of development.

If residents have any comments regarding this application they should write to Swale Borough Council quoting Ref: SW/14/0045. The plans can be viewed online at www.swale.gov.uk/planning. They can also be seen at Swale House in Sittingbourne or at the Swale office at the Alexandra Centre in Faversham.
