Land at Halden Field, off Halden Lane, Rolvenden
This web page gives you the chance to find out more about our emerging proposals for a new residential development at Halden Field in Rolvenden.
We are currently drawing up a ‘reserved matters’ planning application which will allow for 40 new homes including affordable housing. The site already benefits from outline planning approval for residential development and will include extensive contributions to local facilities and services.
A public consultation event was held at Rolvenden Village Hall, Maytham Road, Rolvenden, Kent, on Tuesday 8th September 2015 to allow local people to view and comment on the latest proposals for the site prior to the submission of a planning application.

Following consideration of all comments a ‘Reserved Matters’ planning application for 40 new homes including affordable housing was submitted in December 2015. The site already benefits from outline planning approval for residential development and will include extensive contributions to local facilities and services.
Following receipt of comments on the application and discussion with Rolvenden Parish Council amended plans were submitted to Ashford Borough Council in September 2016 that included a change to the mix of houses (to include a higher proportion of smaller properties), the relocation of the main area of open space from adjoining the Halden Lane boundary to within the site, repositioning of the dwellings along the northern boundary and a change to the roof forms of a number of the dwellings to better reflect local styles.
The application was approved by Ashford Borough Council’s Planning Committee on 14 December 2016.
