Land off A20 Ashford Road - Sellindge - Kent - TN25 6JY

Taylor Wimpey has submitted a reserved matters planning application for Phase 2 of a new residential development of up to 250 homes in total (in phases 1 and 2) on land south of the A20 Ashford Road, Sellindge.

  • Overview

    Overview

    We have submitted a reserved matters planning application for Phase 2 of a new residential development of up to 250 homes in total (in phases 1 and 2) in Sellindge.

    The site is to the south of the A20 Ashford Road, north of the M20 motorway and surrounds the existing Sellindge Village Hall and surgery site.

    In 2016, Shepway District Council granted full planning permission for Phase 1 of the development, which comprises 50 new homes, a village green with play equipment, a community car park and two new road accesses from the A20. Construction work for Phase 1 has now started.

    At the same time, the district council also granted us outline planning permission for Phase 2 of the development, which includes 200 new homes, a mixed-use centre including a parish office, commercial floorspace for a shop, restaurant or takeaway, and landscaping.

    The location of our proposed development is shown on the plan to the right. The area with red lines shows phase 1 of the development which will comprise 50 homes. The remaining area within the red line plan shows Phase 2.

    We held a public consultation on our proposals for Phase 2 at Sellindge Village Hall on Thursday 15th February 2018. The consultation boards that were displayed at our public exhibition can be downloaded here.

    The consultation period closed on Monday 26th February 2018. The feedback we have received from local residents and stakeholders helped us to finalise the details of our proposals before we submitted a reserved matters application to Shepway District Council in March 2018. Our planning application can be viewed by visiting Shepway District Council's planning pages and searching reference number Y18/0402/SH.

     

     

     

     

  • About the site

    About the site

    The site is located in Sellindge village centre, south of the A20 Ashford Road, and surrounds the existing Sellindge Village Hall and surgery site.

    We submitted a hybrid planning application to Shepway District Council on 31st July 2014 and this was approved by the authority on 22 January 2016. The application sought full planning approval for Phase 1, which comprises 50 new homes, a village green with play equipment, a community car park and two new road accesses off the A20. The application also sought outline planning permission for Phase 2, which comprises 200 new homes, a mixed-use community building with parish office, a commercial unit to house either a shop, restaurant or takeaway, plus landscaping.

    We have now submitted a reserved matters planning application to Shepway District Council for Phase 2 and this will determine how the scheme will look and be laid out.
