Legal & General Affordable Homes secures planning permission for over 200 homes at Chatham Waters in Kent
Plans were submitted for 237 affordable homes by LGAH and Peel L&P back in September. The mixture of shared ownership and affordable rented homes will include 1-and 2-bed apartments and 3-bed town houses.
A further planning application for the Central Park at Chatham Waters has also been approved by Medway Council. It will provide over an acre of green space for local communities to enjoy, and will include trees, planting, seating and communal play areas.
Chatham Waters already comprises a number of completed residential projects, including homes for sale and rent. The 26-acre waterside destination is also home to a University Technical College, Marston’s family restaurant, Asda Superstore and extensive public open space.
To date, over £100m has been invested at Chatham Waters. With around 750 full time jobs created, it is estimated to contribute c.£19m to the local economy each year. Work is expected to start on the new affordable homes and Central Park in Spring 2022 with an estimated two-year period for completion.
