The Developer 

Pentland Homes is a private limited company and, unlike some of the national PLC housebuilders, we answer to our customers, not to shareholders. We are proud of our roots as a Kent-based business and are passionate about building quality homes in the county.

We are committed to excellent customer service standards, and dedicated to pushing the development of housing designs that continue to meet the ever-changing requirements and demands of modern living.

The Proposed Development

The proposal is seeking consent for the following:

‘Retrospective application seeking consent for 2no. previously approved self-build plots (as per hybrid permission 20/1397/FH, as well as RM permissions 22/1195/FH and 22/1189/FH). Full application seeking detailed planning consent for a residential development comprising 47 dwellings (including 10 affordable homes), including access, parking and landscaping as well as additional car parking spaces for the adjacent Doctors’ Surgery and a new footpath linking PROW HE59 with the footway along the eastern side of Broad Street.’

It is important to note that the proposed application does include self build development as a retrospective aspect, as these units have been approved as per hybrid permission 20/1397/FH, as well as RM permissions, with condition discharges ongoing.

The proposed dwellings will be 2 storey in height with a combination of terraced, semi- detached and detached buildings providing a range of 1 to 5 bedroom homes.

The proposed material palette would consist of soft red brick, horizontal boarding (dark and light), tile hanging, and red roof tiles. Parking and cycling provision is provided in line with KCC standards.

The proposed development would retain most of the existing hedgerows around the site and would enhance this with the introduction of proposed mixed native species hedgerow and trees. The proposed works will be described in detail in the submitted Design and Access Statement (‘D&A’) and drawings.
