The Hybrid Planning Application was granted planning permission in January 2015 for a mixed use development on the land between the A20 and the M20 within the village of Sellindge, Kent.
The proposed mixed-use development comprises up to 250 new dwellings and the delivery of a Mixed Use Local Centre comprising a Parish Office, commercial floor space and residential apartments. At the heart of the scheme a new Village Green is proposed accommodating the existing pond and providing a new focal space to the village of Sellindge. The planning application was supported by an extensive amount of involvement with the local community from the outset to steer the design process.
Furthermore to this, planning permission was granted in June 2019 for 190 new homes along with a mixed-use local centre to include parish council offices and shop units.
The Reserved Matters approval, on Phase 2 at Sellindge, was a residential led development designed around a village green and local centre providing a new heart to the village.
The proposals for Phase 2 were designed in accordance with the principles established by the approved outline masterplan, and evolved from the outline application to include some minor changes to the original indicative masterplan, including:
- Changes to the internal road layout
- The detailing of streets and spaces enhanced throughout
The architecture of the dwellings was inspired by Kent’s local vernacular, drawing inspiration from local materials including, red brick and white/black weatherboarding.
