£140 million Kent village plan needs master developer

Dover District Council seeks manager for sustainable Aylesham development

A Kent council is seeking a developer to oversee a £140 million revamp of a former mining village. Dover District Council has worked with English Partnerships and the South East England Development Agency on a master-plan for Aylesham village to create a balanced and sustainable community. It is now looking for someone to carry the plans forward. Proposals include up to 1,000 new homes, shopping facilities and the redevelopment of existing open space. Plans have been made for a sports centre and improved outdoor pitches at the village recreation ground. A local primary school could receive up to two hectares of land for new playing fields. Dover District Council forward planning manager Mike Ebbs said the council will appoint a master developer in the spring and will submit a planning application in autumn 2006. Early public consultation identified a high value of the village’s central open space but residents said the area wasn’t being used to its full potential.
