Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Dartford
We acquired the land at Stone Pit II in March 2022 with outline planning permission for up to 870 homes, areas of open space and community facilities.
We are now preparing a reserved matters planning application for the site. Our proposals include up to 775 new homes which, subject to reserved matters planning approval, will be completed between 2023 and 2026. Our plans also include a number of affordable homes for local people in housing need.
As part of the development, we plan to include areas of open green space, as well as a new on-site healthcare facility, retail space and bespoke Build to Rent units.
About our proposals features
The site is well served by existing local bus services. London Road has a peak service level of 8 buses per hour, while Watling Street has a service of 3 buses per hour, plus a further 4 per hour on a limited stop service via Darent Valley Hospital.
The local highway network is also easily accessible from the site, with the A226 (London Road) along its northern boundary and the A296 (Watling Street) on the southern boundary. Both roads have access to the M25, the A282 for the Dartford River Crossing, and the A2.

History of the site features
Landscape corridors will be introduced around the boundaries of the site, to enhance ecological and recreational benefits.
Boulders, balancing posts, stepping logs and timber stilts will be installed along the landscape corridor to enrich the feature and provide valuable play opportunities close to the new homes. A green grid connection, including cycle, pedestrian paths and play stations will be located along the western boundary.
Additional incidental, natural and informal play will be added along the main east-west route through the development too.
We’re committed to building greener, healthier homes for us all. From energy efficient fixtures and fittings, to cutting our carbon emissions, and enhancing existing green spaces, we build sustainability into everything we do.
