Description

The site (BAE2) is located along the southern edge of Sandyhurst Lane adjacent to the Braehead site. It is set back from Sandyhurst Lane and is not visible from the road. It is accessed from a private track adjacent to May Cottage. The site is rural in nature, surrounded by agricultural fields to the south and north west. It may be that at some future point the site may abut development on the Eureka Park site as set out in Ashford Borough Council’s Local Plan 2030. A former sand quarry, the site is grassed in the centre, with tree and hedgerow boundaries. The land is relatively flat, rising up steeply to the south east and south west boundaries.

The site is c. 2.1 ha.

Other information

The developer made a submission about the site to Ashford Borough Council in response to the public consultation on the draft Local Plan 2030 held in summer 2016. Read it here.

    As it stands there is NO safe road access to this area. if access is made along sandyhurst lane it will be between 2 bends 1 of which is virtually blind. this will need permanent traffic control so there is safe access and egress. the impact on traffic flow along sandyhurst lane will be severe.
    The disruption to the whole of sandyhurst lane will also be very severe trying to get the former sandpit on mains electric gas and water.

      Thank you Matthew for taking the time to post your thoughts on possible future development on the Former Sandpit site, Sandyhurst Lane. We are aware that this site is problematic in terms of safe access. This will be an important consideration when appraising the site for land allocation in our Neighbourhood Plan. Your comment about utilities is also helpful and has been noted.
