Plans to transform the wasteland, close to Ashford International station, were first revealed in October last year at two public consultations.
The land involved is known as the Powergen (now E.ON) site as it was occupied by the firm in the 1990s.
Consultations have been held with major authorities and groups who would be affected by the plans.
South Ashford Community Forum (SACF) said they are “pleased to see proposals coming forward for this long derelict site” but listed a number of concerns including lack of parking and absence of affordable housing.
Victoria Residents’ Business and Recreation Action Group object to the plans due to lack of consultation with residents, height and density of the development, design, parking and affordable housing provision.
The Environment Agency (EA) raises no objection but listed concerns that the area to the south of Victoria Road is located in the undefended functional floodplain. Some 402 neighbours were directly consulted and 13 letters of objection were received stating concerns about the design, size, flooding, affordable housing and local infrastructure.
