Back in 2008, as a Kent County Councillor for the area at the time, Cllr Clive Hart was heavily involved in supporting local residents to protect the green space at Knockholt Road in Cliftonville that links Northdown Park estate with The Ridings and cliff top walks.

Cllr Hart said "at one point back in 2008 a Cliftonville East district ward councillor, who was also the council leader at the time, worried local residents with plans for a building development on the green through the TDC asset disposal process and I therefore responded by applying to Kent County Council for the green space to be registered as an official public right of way.

Well, it's 2010 and the lengthy right of way process has finally moved on and a detailed investigation into the usage of the green space for public access is now at last underway".
If residents feel the green space at Knockholt Road has been valuable to them as a means of access and they have used it for that purpose during any reasonable length of time between 1988 and 2008, they can help protect it for the future by phoning Public Rights of Way Officer Maria McLauchlan on 01622 696871 and letting her know.

Alternatively they can write to Countryside Access, Invicta House, County Hall, Maidstone, Kent ME14 1XX.
