- A greenfield site
- Community orchard will also be provided
The development of 120 new homes will fund the construction of a new sports facility for the Marden Cricket and Hockey Club.
A new cricket pitch, hockey and multi use games pitches will be provided, as well as new tennis courts, complemented by a new club house which will provide changing, bar and dining facilities.
The greenfield site was promoted for a year before an application was encouraged by Maidstone Borough Council ahead of an allocation. Planning was received in October 2015 with a start on site scheduled in Autumn 2016.
