Nursed back to a bright new fu­ture

Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - HOMES NEWS -

Work is al­most com­plete at a for­mer dis­used NHS site.

The fi­nal touches are be­ing added to Edge, where Bell­way has built 69 new homes on a for­mer site of a nurses’ home near Maid­stone Hospi­tal.

The build­ings had fallen into dis­use, and were deemed sur­plus to re­quire­ments in May 2012.

Bell­way re­ceived full plan­ning per­mis­sion to de­velop the site in March 2015.

All the homes have now been sold at the Her­mitage Lane de­vel­op­ment and sales man­ager for Bell­way’s Kent di­vi­sion, Kirstie Frith, said the project had been a fan­tas­tic suc­cess.

She said: “Edge has been one of our most pop­u­lar sites over the last 12 months or so, and is a fan­tas­tic ex­am­ple of how a brown­field site can be trans­formed into a bril­liant new com­mu­nity.

“The site had fallen into dis­use, so it was a great op­por­tu­nity to be able to re­vi­talise the area and pro­vide some much­needed new homes at the same time. We’re very proud of the way Edge has turned out.”

“Many res­i­dents have now moved in and it’s been bril­liant to see the com­mu­nity here form over the past few months.”
