Housebuilding start moves closer

Peters Village developer Trenport has awarded the contract to build the first batch of new homes at the site, on the east bank of the River Medway near Wouldham (See later story 'Bellway to build first at Peters Village').

Those who have already used this website to register an interest in the 152 homes of Phase 1 will have their details forwarded to Bellway, which will obviously handle the sales.

We will also publish its contact details here, so that would-be buyers can get in direct touch.

The approved plans for the Phase 1 homes were originated by Trenport itself, with the intention of setting a premium benchmark right at the start of the housebuilding process, and will then be formally adopted by the first housebuilder.

Trenport Director Chris Hall explained: “The Peters Village scheme will eventually deliver 1,000 homes and it is important that this first phase sets a high quality tone. We have listened to the views of the local community in developing these proposals, with detailed matters including building heights and parking.”

Trenport has actually exceeded car parking guidelines from Kent County Council by some margin: 313 spaces – including 44 on-street communal or visitors’ slots – to serve the 152 Phase 1 homes.

Keen to create the blueprint for a new community that is visually interesting and characterful, Trenport has opted for a careful and varied mix of properties comprising 28 2-bed apartments and 124 houses, with the latter breaking down into 16 2-bed, 75 3-bed and 33 4-bed homes.
