Care home operator commits to HDD development

15th May 2018

A 66-bed high-quality care home for the elderly is set to be built at a £15 million local centre development in Kent following a pre-let agreement announced today by Henry Davidson Developments (HDD).

The news comes shortly after HDD revealed it had exchanged contracts to acquire three plots of land for development south of the historic market town of Faversham.

A pre-let agreement with leading hotel chain Premier Inn was also recently announced by HDD for the site.

Subject to planning consent, the Ashford Road development will include a small food store, an 84-bed Premier Inn hotel and a 66-bed care home by LNT Care Developments.

Project director Kevin Foster said: “Our pre-sale agreement with LNT Care Developments follows hot on the heels of our Premier Inn announcement.

“We are delighted to welcome them to the development in what is another step towards delivering first class new facilities at the local centre for the people of Faversham. We are also talking to food store operators and will make an announcement in due course.”

Dozens of jobs for local people will be created during construction and at the new facilities once the project is completed. HDD hopes to start on site in Q4 this year, with practical completion expected in late 2019.

HDD has exchanged contracts to acquire the land from Hallam Land Management, part of the Henry Boot Group, and vendors FK Kemsley & Sons Ltd, who were jointly advised by Strutt & Parker.

The local centre site is adjacent to a residential development being delivered by national housebuilder Barratt Homes. They are due to start building the first of 310 new homes later this year.
