Local housebuilder Bovis Homes will soon deliver much-needed new homes to north west Kent, after planning consent was granted for 200 new homes in Gravesend.
The properties will form part of a joint scheme of 400 homes with Persimmon Homes, and will see Bovis Homes delivering 140 properties for the open market, and a further 60 allocated as affordable (50% social rented and 50% shared ownership).
The proposals, which were approved unanimously by Gravesham Borough Council's planning committee, include Section 106 contributions towards education, highways, social services and sport and leisure facilities.
David Dodds, Associate Land Director at Bovis Homes, who have recently moved their head offices to Kings Hill, said: “We're delighted to have received reserved matters consent for new homes at Gravesend.
“We are now looking forward to the next stage of this development and bringing these much-needed new homes to fruition.”
As well as the new homes, the plans will also see the delivery of three play areas for children of various ages, a green corridor and a new country park.
