Greenhithe, Kent, UK - Sold Out
SJ Capital Group is proud to announce the launch of their new exciting UK strategic land investment site.
The Strategic Development Area lies within the Dartford district of Kent. The site consists of a small bowling green and pavilion that is still in use, a large area of overgrown redundant car parking and a derelict football club pavilion and pitch that was formerly the privately owned Sports Ground but which has not been used for several years.
The site lies within a predominantly residential area characterised by two storey terraced housing. An existing large recreational ground with children’s play equipment and formal sports pitch lies immediately to the north of the site.
It is in close proximity to the M25 Motorway which encircles the Greater London area, and is only 3.8 miles to the Dartford Crossing. Ebbsfleet International Railway Station is located less than 3 miles away and serves the area with four trains per hour to London's St Pancras International in addition to daily Eurostar services to Paris and Brussels.
The Local Plan adopted in April 1995 is now out of date but the Secretary of State saved a number of Adopted Local Plan policies beyond September 2007 until such time that the Local Development Framework (LDF) is adopted. The site is identified on the Proposals Map as within the existing built up area but there are no specific housing or open space allocations relating to the site.
The Core Strategy is currently at Pre-submission stage. A Pre-submission Core Strategy Document was published for public consultation on the 2nd September 2010 for a six-week period running until the 14th October 2010. The Core Strategy will be submitted to the Secretary of State in November 2010, with Examination then expected in March 2011 and formal Adoption in September 2011.
The Core Strategy Submission Draft Document at Policy CS10 sets out key locations for residential development to address the 17,340 new dwellings target and these sites include Eastern Quarry to the south of the site. Policy CS4 promotes a chain of distinctive and individual but linked communities, existing and new within the Priority Area. The Policy also promotes the making of existing open spaces including Craylands Gauge publically available, which would provide improved and direct links between the site and Craylands Lane area to the east, and Eastern Quarry to the south.
