Maidstone is fast becoming the commercial hub of the South East.
Junction 6 - Abbey Court, new office units
A proposed development at Abbey Court will see a strategic site on land off Junction 6 of the M20 reach its potential with the development of five new office units.
The proposed scheme totals an area of 4,600m² and is located south of the M20 motorway at Junction 6, bounded by the A229 to the west, Boarley Lane to the east and the M20 motorway to the north. The development will make a significant contribution to Maidstone's economy by delivering an attractive and modern working environment.
The proposed industrial park has been put forward by BJF Connections, the current owners and occupiers of the land at Abbey Court. The new development will become the firm's head office and will offer local employment opportunities to businesses looking to locate in the area, as well as boosting the town's local economy.
Abbey Court will also provide significant economic benefits and high-quality employment opportunities to support the growth in housing across the town.
Junction 8 - Woodcut Farm, new industrial units
Planning permission has been granted for a new, multi-million-pound commercial business park at Junction 8 of the M20 in Maidstone, which will provide much-needed office, warehouse and light industrial space to serve the borough's growing economy.
Developer Roxhill is proposing to develop a new state-of-the-art commercial business park on land at Woodcut Farm. The project will deliver more than 47,500m2 of employment space, incorporating eight storage and distribution warehouses and six high quality office units. The development will create up to 1,200 jobs and bring essential commercial space to Maidstone.
The development will provide a significant boost to existing Maidstone businesses through new job creation, associated spin-off expenditure in the town and contracts for local businesses to service the new development.
