The site is around 3 miles from Folkestone Central railway station which offers

Planning & Proposed Scheme
Outline planning permission was granted on 28th February 2020 under reference DOV/19/0069 for a scheme comprising 34 no. dwellings comprising 8 no. 2 beds, 17 no. 3 beds and 9
no. 4 beds and means of access approved. Landscaping, appearance, layout and scale were all reserved for later consideration. The Reserved Matters application under reference
DOV/22/00043 pursuant to application DOV/19/0069 for the approval of landscaping, layout, scale and appearance was granted consent on the 8th June 2023.
The proposed layout shows 34 no. individual plots with several served from various shared accesses onto Capel Street. The rear of the site is served by a single road running through the
centre of the site from east to west. An open landscaped area at the western end of the spine road provides a small area of green space. Views from the entrance end of the main spine
road lead towards the green space which acts as a vista providing views to the fields beyond. Ecological buffer zones and drainage requirements have been incorporated into the layout.
The proposed new dwellings have been carefully positioned to ensure the retention of the existing trees that surround the site.
Local Planning Policy DM5 states that for sites of over 15 units, 30% on site affordable housing is required. In line with this policy the S106 agreement requires 10 no. of the units to be of
an affordable tenure. All the affordable housing is clustered in the south west corner of the site and comprises units 5 – 9 and units 10 – 14.
There is no stipulation within the Section 106 with respect to the timing of the delivery of the Affordable Housing.
