Junction 6 - Abbey Court, new office untis
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
Clearbell Property Partners III LP (Clearbell) has acquired the site previosuly held by Roxhill. Following the acquisition, Clearbell’s development and project management teams will seek to bring the development forward and embrace the latest green technology in their designs. The acquisition is a significant addition to Clearbell’s existing portfolio of multi-let industrial (MLI) assets and will join a 12.5-acre site in Thatcham, purchased in June last year.
Clearbell seeks to add additional sites to the portfolio to help combat the acute undersupply of industrial and logistics assets, both in the South East and throughout the UK.
