This huge com­plex of 660 new homes in the cen­tre of Ash­ford is set to be given the green light next week.

Coun­cil­lors are likely to ap­prove the de­vel­op­ment, a mix of flats and houses built on empty land off Vic­to­ria Road, on the former Pow­er­gen site.

It comes as Ash­ford coun­cil re­vealed its de­vel­op­ment strat- egy up to 2030, which has iden­ti­fied a fur­ther 5,035 new homes across the bor­ough.

These in­clude the 700-home ‘Large Bur­ton’ de­vel­op­ment at Ken­ning­ton, and a pro­posed new es­tate at Court Lodge Farm to the south of the town, where 950 homes could be built along­side shops and a pri­mary school.
