Gladman Developments plan 840 homes off Hermitage Lane in Aylesford

By Alan Smith

Residents have a chance to give their views on plans for a development of 840 new homes off Hermitage Lane in Aylesford.

Cheshire-based Gladman Developments is promoting proposals to build a new estate with a play area, covering 34 hectares on a triangle of land between the A20 and Barming Railway Station.

It also proposes “significant improvements” to the Poppy Fields roundabout and says it will provide land so the junction of the A20 and Hermitage Lane can be upgraded.

There would also potentially be space for a primary school and doctors’ surgery.

It has delivered nearly 500 leaflets to homes and businesses in the area this month to let people know about the proposals.

The New Allington Action Group has already made its views known, by raising a 1,000-strong petition against the proposals.

Protestors have previously asked for councils to stop further development in the lane until congestion is tackled

The site falls within the borough of Tonbridge and Malling.

Gladman has suggested its plans would ease traffic congestion on the A20 and Hermitage Lane by providing a new link road and junction improvements. Affordable housing would make up 40% of the homes.
