De­vel­oper con­sults on es­tate plans

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

Res­i­dents are giving their views on plans for a de­vel­op­ment of 840 homes off Her­mitage Lane in Ayles­ford.

Cheshire-based Glad­man De­vel­op­ments is pro­mot­ing pro­pos­als to build an es­tate with a play area, cov­er­ing 34 hectares on a triangle of land be­tween the A20 and Barm­ing Sta­tion. It pro­poses “sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments” to the Poppy Fields round­about, and says it will pro­vide land so the junc­tion of the A20 and Her­mitage Lane can be up­graded.

There would also po­ten­tially be space for a pri­mary school and a doc­tors’ surgery.

Glad­man has de­liv­ered nearly 500 leaflets to homes and busi­nesses in the area this month to let peo­ple know about the pro­pos­als.

The New Alling­ton Ac­tion Group has al­ready made its views known, by rais­ing a 1,000-strong pe­ti­tion against the pro­pos­als.

The site falls within the bor­ough of Ton­bridge and Malling.
