Latest News - 24 October

Rochester Road, Burham: a new footpath being constructed on the eastern side of Rochester Road will make it far easier for pedestrians walking along this section known as Alex Hill. The footpath will run opposite the top of Bull Lane to opposite the junction of the existing Court Road. While this work is being carried out by our contractors BAM Nuttall, temporary traffic controls will be in operation along this section starting on 3 November.

It is expected that these controls will be in place until 19 December. There will be temporary one way traffic for approximately 250 meter stretches and these will be in place 24 hours a day throughout the working week. It is planned that they will be removed at weekends. No priority can be given to any drivers other than emergency services. Advanced warning signs will be erected a minimum of a week prior to the traffic lights being in place.

Peters Village

After several years of planning and public consultation, Trenport achieved planning approval in May 2006 for a new village near Wouldham in Kent, and a new bridge across the River Medway. Trenport is committed to ensuring that the new project is a model of sustainable development.
 

This means providing, amongst other things, community facilities that reduce the need for journeys by car by providing a high quality environment for pedestrians, cyclists and equestrians and improved bus services.

The Local Plan

The site has been identified since the mid 1990's as suitable for residential development. It is allocated as such within Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council's Local Plan. It is also identified for residential development within Kent County Council's Structure Plan.

The planning process

The submission of the planning applications for the village and the bridge followed a long period of study of the site and surrounding area. The study looked at environmental issues such as ecology, landscape, transport and land contamination. Outline planning approval for the construction of a new village of 1,000 residential units was granted by Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council. Detailed planning permission was required for the new bridge, and it was granted jointly by Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council and Medway Council in May 2006, as the new bridge crosses the boundaries of the two local authorities.   Master Plan

A sustainable development

The village is illustrated on the master plan above. The net area of development is approximately 35.05 hectares (86.61 acres) of which 11.1 hectares (27.3 acres) is set aside as public open space. The new village will include:-
  • Regrading of the site with four development areas: one alongside the river (old Peters Works site), and three within the former quarry. Acceptable gradients will be created and the site will be protected from flooding.
  • 1,000 homes of varying sizes and tenures, including affordable housing for local people.
  • Development within the village centre next to the river will include buildings to a maximum of 4/5 storeys high. Those on the lower platform in the quarry and along Hall Road will be 2/ 2 � storeys high with the occasional 'landmark' building at 3/4 storeys. Those on the middle and upper quarry platforms will be up to 2 � storeys high.
  • New primary school
  • Local centre next to the river including: community centre, police post, medical centre, ambulance post, shop, public house and employment units.
  • New areas of open space and playing fields.
  • A new riverside walk
  • Protection and management of the Peters Pit nature reserve.
