Plans for a new estate of houses and flats have been revealed for a car breakers.
The proposals are for 26 properties made up of seven four-bed homes, 11 three-bed houses, four two-bed flats and four one-bed flats.
Parking and landscaping is also included for the site, set to be developed on land at Bobbing Car Breakers in Sheppey Way, Bobbing.
The plans were passed to Swale council in February and will be considered for outline planning permission.
At the moment, the site is composed of workshops, storage areas and other single-storey industrial buildings.
The plot will also have 44 car parking spaces. Two spaces are required for three and four-bed houses and one parking space per unit for the flats.
Additional parking spaces for visitors are also part of the plans.
The applicant, S&P Motors, has also set aside room for eight bicycle spaces for the flats.
A bin store will also be provided for occupants of the flats.
A portion of the properties will be designated as affordable housing as part of the scheme. They will come in the form of eight one and two-bed flats, two three-bed houses and one four-bed house.
If the plans are given approval, motorists will be able to get on the development by using the existing Sheppey Way entrance on the north of the site. A new lane would then allow residents to drive through the development to their homes. Landscaping will be provided around the edge.
The applicant said: “The scheme provides a logical utilisation of a brown field site and enhances the amenity of the existing dwellings adjoining the site.”
Kent County Council’s flood and water management department said no drainage proposals had been submitted and asked for one to be carried out.
