Ashford back to case studies

HDD in association with property regeneration company U+I will develop the six-acre Victoria Way site located opposite Ashford International train station.

The scheme will consist of an 18,500 sq ft Aldi supermarket with 93 parking spaces, creating more than 60 jobs. Chapel Down will open a brewery to expand sales of its Curious Brew brand together with a visitor centre including a shop, restaurant and bar.

Plans also include 200 built-to-rent apartments, made up of 48 studio flats, 52 one-bedroom homes and 100 two-bedroom apartments. There will also be a separate block of 16 flats to be built above three retail units.

The development is expected to provide £50m worth of economic growth to Ashford over the next ten years, with £3.8m additional revenue spent by residents in the town each year.

Planning consent has been granted and development is due to commence in Q3 2017.
