We supported Redrow Homes Eastern on this development in Maidstone with our consultation capability. In January 2017 outline planning permission was granted for 335 dwellings. In May 2019 the team was prepared and submitted a full planning application for 302 homes.

302 dwellings

Reserved Matters, Consultation, Discharge of Conditions

What is the Status?

We successful secured Planning permission for a large major development of 302 dwellings including parking, access, landscaping and associated works in rural Kent in Maidstone Borough Council. We also obtained Non Material Amendment (NMA) approval for the erection of conservatories to some of the plots of the larger development.

Following 4 x pre-app meetings with planning officers as well as a presentation to Maidstone Members in June 2019 and a short period of local stakeholder consultation, in August 2020 the Reserved Matters submission for 302 dwellings was submitted.

Following particular interest being paid by a Member of the Planning Committee to energy/sustainability and affordable housing matters, the scheme was, in part amended. This led to the Planning Committee in January 2020 resolving to grant planning permission.

The S106 was signed and a planning permission issued in July 2020. We continue to work on Community Infrastructure Levy and discharge of condition matters.
