Bovis Homes to work closely with Teynham community on new homes

14 July 2017


Bovis Homes is looking to work closely with the local community on proposals to deliver up to 125 new homes at Teynham, Kent.

The house builder is presenting its plans at a public exhibition at Teynham Community Hall on Tuesday 18th July from 2pm to 7pm, where members of the project team will be on hand to discuss the proposals with local residents and answer any questions they have.

There will also be an opportunity for members of the public to offer feedback, which will be used to help shape the plans, ahead of Bovis Homes submitting an outline planning application in the autumn.

"Developing positive relationships with the communities in which we operate is a key part of the way we work," said Lucy Atkins, Planning Manager at Bovis Homes. "Events like the one at Teynham are an opportunity for people to share their own local knowledge and help shape the plans.

"We continue to work with communities as these new neighbourhoods are created as we seek to deliver developments that reflect local need and that communities will be proud of."

The proposed development by Bovis Homes in Teynham forms part of the proposed new Local Plan from Swale Borough Council and would see up to 125 homes built, ranging in size from small starter-homes to larger family houses, including a number of affordable homes.

For those who enjoy spending time outdoors, the proposals include areas of green space,  play areas and walking routes through the scheme. An attractive historic orchard on the site would also be retained and enhanced with additional trees, seating and natural play facilities.

"We understand that there are questions that local residents will have about our plans in Teynham and we are committed to communicating on these as openly as possible," says Lucy. "We're looking forward to seeing and speaking to lots of local people at our exhibition."
