Two big schemes across 14 acres of unused land in Ashford will bring more than 800 homes and over 200 jobs to the local area.
Leading property regeneration company U+I are developing plans to bring forward more than 800 homes and new amenities across two sites in Ashford’s centre. Both sites are in close proximity to Ashford International Station with direct fast links to central London.
The proposed schemes for both sites, designed by architect Guy Holloway, will help to create over 200 jobs for the local area and build a new community on Victoria Way.
The first site is located next to Victoria Way on the former Powergen site. U+I who are in partnership with Quinn Estates, have submitted plans for a total of 660 homes to be developed, 400 of which will be modern and stylish homes for the private rented sector. These homes will be of a high-quality Scandinavian design and will offer affordable long-term rents.
This strategic regeneration project will help to link Ashford town centre with Victoria Park to the south, creating a new residential community and breathing life into a long unused site
U+I has also exchanged contracts (subject to planning) to acquire a second site, located opposite Ashford International Station, from the Homes and Communities Agency. Almost six acres in size, a masterplan is currently in progress for a significant regeneration project that will house approximately 200 residential units, a 120-bed hotel and an Aldi food store, (see the artist impression below of the hotel opposite the Chapel Down Brewery impression). U+I aims to submit a planning application in April 2016.
