Chilmington Green part of £500 million bid to develop county

15 May, 2014

Kent County Council and Medway Council have drawn up a six year masterplan in a bid to secure up to £500 million of government funding for county-wide development.

The Kent and Medway Growth focuses on four main areas: Thames Gateway Kent; East Kent; Maidstone and the M20 corridor and West Kent, including the Medway Valley. Eight developments in and around Ashford have been included in the masterplan and Chilmington Green is a featured project.

Chilmington Green’s project manager, Peter Reed, said: “We are delighted the project has been featured in the bid. Chilmington Green will play a vital role in kick starting the expansion and economic development of east Kent, providing 5,750 new homes and more than 1,000 new jobs.”

The Government is expected to announce this summer which projects it has chosen to provide development funding to.
