Eclipse Park Hotel
dha transport assisted in securing outline planning consent for a 150 bed business hotel at Eclipse Business Park, Maidstone.
Lengthy pre-application discussions were held with Kent Highway Services and the Highways Agency, resulting in an outline scheme and access strategy suitable to deliver the scheme. Particular regard was paid to the impact of the development on the motorway network and junctions, which endure traffic capacity problems at present.
The proposals include a Travel Plan, produced to minimise the effect of travel associated with the hotel and to promote sustainable transport. The draft Travel Plan, which sits within the Eclipse Framework Travel Plan, was approved by Kent Highway Services in 2010 under their recently published criteria.
