A village in Swale that has already hosted substantial numbers of new houses in recent years is likely to see almost 500 more.
The latest plans come from local operation G H Dean and Co, which is seeking outline permission to build up to 466 houses and a village hall in Iwade; the scheme also includes a nursery, along with a bid for full planning permission for a country park.
The properties would range from one-bedroom flats to five-bedroom houses.
The proposed sites, which would be accessed primarily from Grovehurst Road as well as The Street, have been allocated for development in the borough council’s 2017 Local Plan.
Agent Hume Planning Consultancy said in its document: “The development proposed in this application would add a further 466 dwellings to the east of the village, where the land is considered most appropriate for new housing, as set out in the 2017 Local Plan.
“The village of Iwade has expanded considerably since it was first identified as a growth point in the 1990s, with some 1,200 new homes completed since.”
