Plans for Hoo new town criticised by environmentalists


Plans for a new town on the Hoo peninsula in Kent have been criticised by environmentalists.

They say the developers have not thought through the implications for wildlife properly.

The site, a former army base, is a site of special scientific interest.

If built, the new town near Chattenden could create 5,000 homes and four new schools.
