Es­tate could cre­ate new hos­pi­tal route

Kentish Express Ashford & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

Plans for a new hous­ing es­tate link­ing Ash­ford’s Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal with the A20 have been given the green light.

Bosses at Bell­way Homes sub­mit­ted plans for 207 prop­er­ties in Willes­bor­ough Lees last year, but cut the num­ber to 192 in Au­gust.

They have now had their scheme – which will in­clude a new link road be­tween Hinx­hill Road and the A20 – ap­proved by Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil’s plan­ning com­mit­tee.

It means bosses at the East Kent Hos­pi­tals Trust, which runs the Har­vey, could now open a sec­ond en­trance to the hos­pi­tal through the new es­tate link­ing to the A20.

Cllr Michael Burgess, chair­man of the com­mit­tee, said the site – dubbed Willes­bor­ough Green – had been ear­marked for devel­op­ment in Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil’s lo­cal plan.

“As it was in the Lo­cal Plan, no one was re­ally sur­prised it was ap­proved,” said Cllr Burgess.

The 24-acre site will fea­ture 22 two-bed­room, 83 three-bed­room and 70 four-bed­room houses, as well as a num­ber of flats.
