Unfortunately the new coalition will have a hard job undoing the damage that the previous lot of incumbents have done to Swale and particularly Sittingbourne. The road system is a congested nightmare and will only get worse when the housing that has already been given planning permission is built. It is obvious to most of us that the station area is a design disaster even before it is finished. Ex-councillor Bowles and his chums have certainly left a legacy to be remembered by.
