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.
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.
