Cliffe and Cliffe Woods Parish Council

Town Road Opposite Rec

THERE IS NOT AN APPLICATION TO SUPPORT OR OBJECT TOO CURRENTLY, JUST CONSULTATION AT THIS STAGE.

Residents have spotted people carrying out surveys on the land - this is part of information gathering for a planning application.

Developers have approached Cliffe and Cliffe Woods Parish and Medway Council about their intention to submit a planning application to develop the land opposite the Cliffe Woods Recreation Ground on the other side of Town Road. The site extends back to where Gladman's propose a development of 223 homes - currently the subject of a planning appeal against Medway's refusal of permission of an outline application. If the Gladman's site is granted permission, then that may change the principle that has been followed by both Parish and Medway Councils in objecting to development on that side of the road.

It is proposed to build around 94 houses and a small court of two blocks for employment purposes. The parish council object to development, in principle, on that side of Town Road and the impact on local community facilities. But if developed, it would need improved access across the road for pedestrians and a safe vehicle access. Any affordable/low cost housing should be for local residents first and there should be provision of bungalows so that some residents can downsize from larger properties in the village. REDROW have been engaged as the builder. 

We understand that the developers are proposing a Full Planning Application soon and are planning a consultation/exhibition event on Monday the 9th July 2018 from  4pm to 8pm in the Community Centre, Cliffe Woods  before submitting the application. Plans can change during public consultation and before submitting to Medway Council Planning and there will be a lot more information available then.
