An estate of 43 houses looks set to be built on land close to the London Road Park and Ride site.
The proposed development on the goods yard of Bunyards Farm in Allington has been complicated by the fact that the site straddles the boundary between Tonbridge and Malling, and Maidstone councils.
Tonbridge and Malling granted approval for the housing element, but the proposed access from Beaver Road had to be granted separate permission by Maidstone council.
The land is currently used by a number of small haulage firms. An adjacent part of the farm already has planning approval for a nine-hole golf course, but that has never been implemented.
Bunayards Farm has a long and complicated planning history. Previous applications have included a football stadium and a superstore, but both came to nothing.
