The parish also has a selection of eateries including traditional pubs and a Chinese restaurant. Slightly further away is the town of Maidstone where a wider range of amenities can be found including The Mall Maidstone and Royal Star Arcade shopping centres and a choice of bars and chain restaurants. The grounds for Maidstone United Football Club and Maidstone Rugby Club are also close by.

Whatman Park is just 3 miles from the development and has 18 acres of a mixture of woodland and open space. Adventure play areas, a treetop walk and a skatepark make the park ideal for a family day out. There is also a riverstage open-air performance area and a boating lake from those who want to relax and take in the surroundings. 

Barming Woods are also just a short distance from Oakapple Place so residents can take a stroll along the footpaths or take a ride through the peaceful woodland following a choice of cycle routes. 

Families moving to Oakapple Place will find that there are a selection of primary schools in local area including Barming Primary School and Jubilee Primary School. Oakwood Grammar School and St Augustine Academy are also just a short distance from the development.

Community benefits

In addition to the provision of much-needed new homes and public open space on site, a legal agreement, known as a Section 106 Agreement was approved under the outline application. This agreement will see us make the following financial contributions to Maidstone Council/Kent County Council:


  • £34,240 open space contribution, to be spent on land within one kilometre of the site or the unmade section of Oakapple Lane. We are proposing to include open space improvement works to Oakapple Lane as part of our reserved matters proposals, which allows the financial contributions from the site to be spent on other open space within 1km;
  • £277,765 education contribution towards the land and build costs of phase 2 of the Hermitage Lane Primary School;
  • £71,360 highway contribution towards the costs of improving the A26/Fountain Lane junction including a pedestrian crossing, and junction 5 of the M20;
