Introducing Chilmington Green
Chilmington Green will be a new community of up to 5,750 quality homes, a district centre and community infrastructure. This will create over 1,000 jobs in the next 20 years, coming forward in four main phases with several hundred homes delivered per year.
The development will provide around £125m towards local amenities including:
- A secondary school
- Four primary schools
- Sports and leisure facilities
- Significant areas of public open space
These will be created as the phases of development come forward.
Part of the overall project also includes improving the A28 Chart Road to tackle congestion and create access to the development.
While Chilmington Green will not be a Garden City in terms of its size, it will reflect many of the design principles of the successful garden cities – tree-lined streets, a spacious layout with high quality public spaces and a strong local community managing local facilities.
A place of special character
From the inception of the Chilmington Green project the ambition has been to create a place of special character with a strong community feel – a place where families and people of all ages will want to live, enjoy and call home.
Outline planning permission was granted early in 2017 with early works on site already under way.
