New proposals for the latest phase of a 1,400-home village have been revealed.
The 500 new-builds are earmarked for fields opposite Westwood Cross shopping centre in Margate between Manston Court Road and Haine Road.
The first phase of the scheme known as Westwood Village One, which includes 900 homes and a primary school, were given the green light in 2019.
The homes were approved alongside new community facilities and shops.
Now developer Rooksmead Residential has shared proposals of how they want the second phase, known as Westwood Village Two, to look and a public consultation will take place next week.
Computer-generated images and plans set ahead of the exhibition out the layout of the estate ahead of the developers submitting a planning application.
It will include the remaining 500 homes, a secondary school, children’s play areas and a new link road between Haine Road and Manston Court Road.
The development comes as Thanet District Council allocated the land for 1,400 homes and mixed commercial use in their local plan.
Both phases will sit side by side and will fill the land between the shopping centre and Manston Solar Farm.
Under phase two, Rooksmead is promising highly energy-efficient homes and a 10% biodiversity net gain.
It also says streets will be pedestrian focused and walking and cycling routes will be built to connect phases one and two.
When phase one was put forward by developers Greenacre Thanet, residents raised concerns the development would “ruin” the countryside.
But despite objections, the plans won the backing of TDC planners and councillors.
It is not clear when work on phase one will begin and the fields remain largely untouched.
A public consultation into the scheme has opened and residents are urged to share their views before plans are put forward.
An in-person event is also being held on October 18 from 3.30pm until 7.30pm at Manston Village Hall in Preston Road.
