A pre-application exhibition of controversial proposals for a new ‘Kennett Garden Village’ will take place on Friday 9 February, from 4pm to 8pm at Kentford & Kennett Village Hall.
The site for the application is adjacent to Station Road, to the north of Kennett Station.
Developer Palace Green Homes (a brand name of the district council’s Trading Company) has been working with Kennett Community Land Trust (CLT), Kennett Parish Council and others to design a development with around 500 homes, an enterprise park, a new car park for the station, a replacement village school, and neighbourhood scale retail facilities such as a shop, café, surgery and community office.
Palace Green Homes and their consultant team, including master-planners, transport, landscape and planning specialists, will be available to discuss the proposals and collect residents’ feedback.
The village hall, where the exhibition will take place, is at Station Road, Kennett CB8 7QF.
More information about the project is available on the architects’ website jtp.co.uk, where a copy of the exhibition will be available from Monday 12 February.
