Development and Investment Opportunity
Frankham Projects are pleased to be marketing the Staff Accommodation Campus, Springwood Close, Maidstone, Kent.
The development site, which has a site area of approximately 1.2ha, comprises six residential Hospital staff accommodation buildings in need of modernisation and is currently occupied.
It is felt that the staff accommodation could be reprovided in a more efficient building and the remainder of the site would be free for redevelopment and offered with vacant possession. A positive pre-application meeting has been held with Maidstone Borough Council on the basis of re-providing 160 staff accommodation units in a new purpose built accommodation block, and the develop-ment of the remainder of the site to form 43 residential units.
An outline planning permission has been granted for the complete redevelopment of the site to provide 57 residential units. The planning reference is 15/502970/OUT.
The current buildings are of a 1980s brick and concrete frame built and are two and three storeys in height providing accommodation for the main Hospital campus. An area of informal landscape and parking area surrounds the buildings. There are no listed Trees.
The staff accommodation site is accessed from Springwood Road, a residential road leading from Springwood Road to the rear of Hermitage Lane. The surrounding area is predominantly residen-tial with a number of recently completed residential developments.
Future potential exists for adjacent land owned by the Trust to be made available to the eventual end purchaser and it is considered the site is suitable for a variety of development uses subject to the necessary consents being achieved.
