Plans For Supermarket And Two Drive-Thru Restaurants In Folkestone

Developers have put forward plans for a new supermarket and two drive-thru restaurants, to be built on the site of a former drinks factory demolished a decade ago.

Reworked plans have been submitted to transform the 11-acre former Silver Spring Mineral Water Company site on Park Farm Industrial Estate in Folkestone.

The original plans were for a pair of mid-range hotels – potentially an Ibis and a Hampton by Hilton – had been reserved for the so-called ‘Folkestone Gateway’ development in 2018.

But the plans for the site close to the Channel Tunnel terminal were scrapped after the Covid pandemic.

Landowner Channex Project Management Ltd, which acquired the plot from previous developers Ravensbourne Investments, changed the plans in 2022 to include a mix of retail, food and business units. They have now made further tweaks which include the addition of a new supermarket and an additional drive-thru restaurant.

Within the planning documents submitted to Folkestone and Hythe District Council (FHDC), the plan also has a proposal for five business units and a builder’s merchant.

It is not yet known which companies will take on the units, but Channex Project Management Ltd says the development would “enhance the quality of life for local residents”.
