Carter Jonas masterplanning, planning and development teams have acted on behalf of promoter and developer Shaptor Capital over a three-year period to progress proposals for a new garden village scale development close to Canterbury and Faversham in the Swale Borough of Kent.
The 2,000+ home settlement will sit adjacent to two existing villages, Boughton-Under-Blean and Dunkirk, with direct access provided via a new junction off the A2 highway. The new village will bring major benefits to the local area, including:
- A GP Surgery, dentists, dispensary and pharmacy;
- A Primary School and Early Years Centre;
- A work hub;
- 50,000sqft of commercial employment space;
- Sports hub; and
- Retail and leisure facilities.
Around 40% of the landholding will become public open space, utilising an established network of rights-of-way and Bridleways to provide access for residents to the wider countryside.
