Proposed Residential Development on Land Adjacent to Fenn Street and Ratcliffe Highway, Kent

Esquire Developments Limited is undertaking a new residential project that includes 44 new homes, associated parking, and open spaces. This development provides a thoughtful response to the site and local environment while adhering to planning policy and best practice guidance.

Located on the Hoo Peninsula, the site is currently partially used as an overflow car park for the nearby Fenn Bell Inn. The development aims to enhance the unique character of the area and includes community enhancements to support the Fenn Bell Conservation Project. Covering approximately 2.22 hectares, the site is surrounded by farmland, clay hills, and extensive marshlands.

The nearest settlement is High Halstow, which offers local amenities such as a primary school, shops, and a pub. The area is well-served by local bus services, with the nearest railway stations being Strood and Rochester. The development will draw from the local architectural identity, using materials such as red brick, clay roof tiles, and black timber boarding.

Overall, this proposed residential development aims to provide high-quality homes that complement the unique surroundings and contribute to the sustainability of the local community.
