High quality housing for Maidstone's growing workforce
Maidstone Borough Council is committed to developing quality, affordable housing in the town centre, and there are two exciting housing developments coming on stream.
Redevelopments at two former car parks, on Brunswick Street and Union Street, will add an additional 94 properties, offering a mix of much-needed homes for sale and rent. 28 of these properties will be affordable housing delivered by a Housing Association partner, and a further 26 will be available to buy. The remaining 40 will be allocated to the rental market and remain under Maidstone Borough Council's Property Holdings Portfolio. The developments are expected to be completed in 2020.
In addition, the development of Lenworth House will create 14 new apartments, which will provide a mix of one, two- and three-bedroom flats for private rent.
Langley Park, The Coppice and Barming Rise are just a handful of other housing developments in and around the borough that are now complete. These projects have brought sought after, quality homes to the area allowing Maidstone to thrive.
Maidstone Borough Council is also supporting a number of private sector housing developments across the borough that will deliver high quality accommodation for the region's expanding workforce.
Work is well under-way on Weston Homes' Springfield Park development. Located just a short walk from the town centre, Springfield Park will be a stunning collection of 502 luxury one, two- and three-bedroom apartments and three bedroom duplexes, with views over the River Medway, Maidstone centre and the surrounding Kent countryside.
The development revolves around a 17-storey tower sited along Royal Engineers’ Road on the upper part of the site which slopes steeply towards the River Medway and Whatman Park beyond.
Located less than five minutes from the M20 motorway and with fast rail links connecting with central London in under an hour, Springfield Park is ideal for families and couples wanting to live in a smaller town setting within easy travelling distance of the capital and the Kent countryside.
