New Planning Application Submitted

In response to comments made on a previous submission made in 2019 and Ashford Borough Council having an identified housing need, Wates Development is pleased to bring forward a revised scheme for Appledore Road.

The scheme not only provides all the community benefits as previously proposed but also a higher level of affordable homes to meet the chronic housing need locally for Tenterden. The new proposals include 150 new homes of which 50% would be affordable (72 homes) and the community benefits remain extensive with an 8.66 hectare country park, five football pitches, a community club house/pavilion, three outdoor play areas, an outdoor gym and new walkways and cycleways.

This exciting development will provide:

High quality new homes for families

72 much needed affordable homes

Three outdoor play areas

An outdoor gym

An 8.66 ha expansive country park

Scrub and grassland mosaic to enhance biodiversity, damp grasslands and new ponds

5 new football pitches along with a club house and parking creating a new sports hub for Tenterden

A new cycle and pedestrian only route to the west of the site

Viewing corridors to St Mildred’s Church

The amended scheme has taken into consideration the views of both the community and local authority. There will be five football pitches, a pavilion and car parking to support the re-establishment of junior football in Tenterden. This will create a clear pathway from mini soccer through to senior football in the town in line with the needs identified by Ashford Borough Council and Tenterden Town Council.

Amendments from the previous planning application include:

Proposed homes reduced from 250 to 145

50% affordable housing (increase of further 10% from previous submission)

Retained vistas of St Mildred’s Church

Increase in natural open space within the residential areas to 6.9 ha

Positive biodiversity strategy through landscape proposals by optimising the grassland ecological value and enhanced mitigation

Increase of landscape buffers along the eastern edge of the site
