Taylor Wimpey began acquiring the Ministry of Defence Shorncliffe Garrison site in 2015. Outline planning permission for a residential development of up to 1,200 homes with a nature conservation area, improved recreation facilities and a new primary school on this site was granted by Shepway District Council, now Folkestone and Hythe District Council, in December 2015. Full planning permission for the initial phases of development at St Martin’s Plain and The Stadium was also granted at the same time, and those phases now have a significant number of occupied homes.
Taylor Wimpey also have planning approval for two further phases, which include homes, retail units and a healthcare facility.
Taylor Wimpey are now preparing to submit five reserved matters planning applications to cover the final stages of development. Together these will comprise approximately 700 homes.
They will hold a public exhibition to give local people and stakeholders the chance to view and comment upon the proposals. The event will take place from 2.30pm until 8pm on Tuesday 24th July 2018 at The Tower Theatre in North Road, Folkestone, CT20 3HL.
By coming along to the exhibition and providing us with your feedback, you can help to influence the details of the final scheme before Taylor Wimpey submit the planning applications to Folkestone and Hythe District Council towards the end of 2018/early 2019.
