Of the new homes, 112 will be affordable – split 24 social rent, 54 affordable for rent, 34 shared ownership – with the remaining 54 being developed for private sale and all consistent with the Kings Hill Design Guide.
Having met with the Parish Council and Ward members, DHA adjusted the scheme on the 8.5-acre site and secured permission under the planning officer’s delegated powers.
Matthew Woodhead, Director at DHA, said: “It is clear that housing associations such as Clarion are making a significant contribution to the delivery of new homes including here in Kent, and helping to tackle the country’s housing shortage.
“Kings Hill is an exemplar development and we are pleased to have played our part in supporting the growth of this sustainable community.””
In addition to its client, Clarion Housing Group, DHA’s planning and transport teams worked closely with Liberty Property Trust, the developer of Kings Hill and the alongside architects, Pollard Thomas Edwards.
