The regeneration of land and properties owned by The Bay Trust in St Margaret’s at Cliffe, in Kent will create 14 eco-friendly homes in the village.
The scheme at St George’s Place promises to set new standards in the design of healthy, low-energy lifetime homes.
In 2013 following the culmination of years of meticulous planning and local consultations the charity agreed the sale of the land to a green developer.
Since then Pete Halsall and his team have shaped their plans resulting in a housing scheme to build 14 homes on a one acre patch of open land.
To replace this open space, The Bay Trust is also proposing to spend around £160,000 creating a new public open space on land it owns, adjoining the village primary school.
A planning application for St George’s Place has now been submitted to Dover District Council. If approved, work is expected to begin by the end of the year.
The Bay Trust’s Executive Director, Charles Bicker, says, “The plans for St George’s Place have been carefully shaped to maximise a range of positive environmental and social impacts locally. Any future financial returns will be invested in a range of charitable initiatives we are working on within the district.”
