Ashford Borough Council is planning to build a new dormitory town of up to 7000 houses on 1000 acres of agricultural land around the hamlet.

The local residents are opposed to the plans and have launched a campaign[1] to resist them.

The area is home to numerous endangered species including great crested newts,[2] water voles[3] and brown hares.
