Leading on a low-carbon, high energy-efficient housing development in the town centre, the Council is asking the public to take part in the event and share their thoughts.
In line with the current Council Local Plan, MBC is working with ZED PODS and Maidstone Property Holdings and investigating the redevelopment of the King Street Car Park for residential use. The proposed development would consist of 16 residential low-carbon, energy-efficient homes which will be built over the current car park.
The innovative way the homes are being constructed will limit disruption to one of the busiest car parks in Maidstone and their design will retain the parking spaces beneath providing an excellent solution to land, revenue, sustainability and permanent housing issues.
The new homes will consist of a mix of 1 and 2 bed apartments (of which 6 will be offered as social rent). More details about the proposed development can be found on the website: https://maidstone.gov.uk/home/primary-services/business-and-investment/primary-areas/regeneration/tier-3-primary-areas/housing-projects
Before submitting a planning application the Council has arranged the online public consultation event to take place on Thursday 3 June at 6.30pm. This will help understand the thoughts and gather feedback from local residents, community groups and businesses regarding the project.
