A new development from Quinn Estates will provide 14 fully serviced self build plots, priced from £295,000, on the site of the former Grafty Green garden centre near Ulcombe.
Award-winning Kent based architect Guy Hollaway was brought in to design the new homes – which are said to be inspired by the setting’s former use and rural setting.
Demolition work is now underway at the desirable Kent location – marking an important milestone in a scheme that will also help to bring jobs and infrastructure improvements to the region. Taking 58 minutes to reach London St Pancras from Headcorn Station, its practical location makes Boughton Park one of the most sought-after self build developments in Kent.
Integral to the planning agreement is a Section 106 contribution of £240,000 to off-site affordable housing, as well as further financial support for local NHS services and other projects. Beyond this agreement Quinn Estates will also provide a £100,000 payment to Boughton Malherbe Parish Council to improve facilities in the community.
“Across Kent we take pride in bringing forward schemes that not only deliver homes of the highest quality, but also deliver benefits to the local community through job creation and improved local facilities,” says Mark Quinn, managing director at Quinn Estates.
The developer was commended by the local council for its approach to the project. “Quinn Estates deserve great credit for their exceptional consultation with both the borough and parish councils and the wider public – taking on board what the community wanted and more importantly delivering on that in the final scheme,” says Cllr Martin Round, Headcorn ward councillor.
