Kent-based Fernham Homes has secured planning on two new sites in the county, continuing the growth of the privately-owned business in the region.
Located in Faversham, in the borough of Swale, and Longfield in the district of Sevenoaks, the two new developments bring a total of 188 homes to Fernham Homes’ pipeline and will see it have five new sites underway across the year.
In Faversham, planning has been granted for a new community of 154 new homes, in a mix of apartments and houses, including 35% affordable homes. Marking Fernham Homes’ largest site to date, it will also introduce an 80-bed care home, a day nursery, three retail units and eight acres of employment space, two extensive play areas and a sports playing pitch area that will be delivered in partnership with a local sports club, all set within eight acres of formal open space.
Approved plans for the Longfield project comprise a total of 34 homes, of which 30% will be affordable. It brings a broad mix of both apartments and houses to the village, ranging from one to four-bedroom styles, which will be located close to the village’s centre and its train station, providing direct services to London within 40 minutes.
The development will be delivered as a joint venture with the landowner with construction due to start autumn 2023 and sales set to launch summer 2024.
