SWALECLIFFE CHALETS CONSERVATION ASSOCIATION, KENT These chalets, sited on the coast between Whitstable and Herne Bay, are in imminent danger of being demolished to make way for a new, regimented caravan park. Indeed, 3 have been destroyed in the last few days! These brightly coloured, individually designed and unique chalets, some of which have been here since before the war, are an integral feature of the North Kent coastline and part of our English heritage and they should remain! Please add your name to our petition to help save them!

Jennie Reed, United Kingdom5 years ago Comments: I stayed in these amazing chalets for most of my childhood holidays in the 50's and 60's and for me they hold memories of some of the happiest times of my life. I was horrified and saddened when I recently viewed the area on Google Earth to see that a large section of them had disappeared. I believe that these timeless structures can coexist with their more modern counterparts and that they actually add to the personality of the Park rather than detract from it.
liz nickells, Spain5 years ago Comments: No caravan site, no matter how well designed can replace the charm, attraction and history of this delightful area. Particularly in a time of global crisis it is important to hold on to what we already have and show future generations how valuble it is to hold onto these little gems.
Diane Dawton, United Kingdom5 years ago Comments: I can remember these lovely chalets from my childhood in the 60s. when I lived in Herne Bay I found this petition when I was searching with a view to buying one and am horrified to see what is happening. This policy by a greedy company is so shortsighted, the British seaside as a holiday destination is coming back in a big way and these little gems are a priceless part of our heritage that people would continue to enjoy. Just look at Whitstable now! Good luck to everyone, keep up the fight.
