Plan Revealed For Extension To Faversham Housing

A plan for extending the number of houses in Faversham has been revealed to the public.

In 2018 Swale Borough Council started to give consideration to the future expansion of Faversham to meet local needs, the Duchy of Cornwall’s land at the south east edge of the town was identified as the most sustainable location for growth.

The masterplan by Architectural and Interior Designer Ben Pentreath, is said to allow for a rich mix of houses, commercial buildings, shops, cafes, schools and other buildings and will contain a significant proportion of affordable housing provision.

The new builds will extend the area behind the main town and will include a number of houses and open spaces. The majority of the houses will include gardens which will make the new area feel open and spacious.

In accordance with the Swale Local Plan Review 2021 allocation, and guided by the local community through public engagement workshops and consultation events, the Duchy is drafting plans to deliver a high quality, sustainable, landscape-led, mixed use community that will become a thriving new urban extension to the town.

The plan in full detail

Despite many people being against building new houses in the county, the masterplan has been met with a positive reception so far, with one person saying “Can you imagine if every sing housing development since the war had had this much thought and care go into it?”

Another person said “Looks great”.

One final comment added “I would love another development like this, although the locals in Faversham dont want their town to get any bigger”.
