A step closer to get­ting rid of eye­sore

Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - FRONT PAGE -

A three-bed­room semide­tached house priced at £299,995 is one of just a hand­ful of homes re­main­ing for sale at a Pent­land Homes de­vel­op­ment at Folke­stone.

The prop­erty, a Chel­tenham house type is at Plot 91 at Schol­ars Vil­lage at Park Farm Road.

Around 90% of the 122 new homes are now sold at the de­vel­op­ment, which re­cently won a site award from the Con­sid­er­ate Con­trac­tors scheme.

For in­for­ma­tion ring 01303 210171 An eye­sore town cen­tre site could be a step closer to be­ing turned into hous­ing af­ter years of wait­ing.

A de­tailed plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion for 150 homes at a for­mer Sit­ting­bourne pa­per mill has been sub­mit­ted to Swale coun­cil.

Abbey De­vel­op­ments wants to build a mix of two and three-bed­room ter­raced houses, apart­ment blocks and af­ford­able hous­ing.

There would also be a strip of land­scaped open space, parking and a chil­dren’s play area.

The mill and wa­ter tower, off Mill Way, were de­mol­ished in 2012 to make way for a su­per­mar­ket and new homes.

Mor­risons was built and opened in 2013 but the rest of the plot has re­mained un­de­vel­oped, leav­ing neigh­bours, par­tic­u­larly those in nearby Char­lotte Street, with unattrac­tive views of mounds of rub­ble.

Now Abbey De­vel­op­ments has ac­quired the land and is press­ing ahead with the project.
