Land off 52 New Street, Ash

Ash, Kent


This brownfield site is irregular in shape extending to the approx. 1.4 ha (3.5 acres) and slopes gently from South to North. Currently the site is partly occupied by various commercial buildings mainly used as offices and storage of white goods in recent years with hardstanding. The Sellers will undertake all demolition prior to completion. The remainder is shrubland. The site has an access from New Street which will be retained for an emergency access with a new access for the development off Sandwich Road.


The site is situated on the outskirts of the village some 160m East of the conservation Area. Ash is a pretty East Kent village providing amenities for everyday needs including two mini markets, Boots Chemist, Primary/Nursery School, Doctors Surgery, Grade I Listed St Nicholas Church, 15th Century Chequers Inn and several historic buildings with Georgian/Regency facades. The surrounding area provides beautiful country walks. The Charming village of Wingham is just some 3 miles away and provides beautiful historic buildings in its centre with various shops, restaurant, public house and St Mary’s Church. Wingam Wildlife Park is a Zoo providing for all ages and only some 1 mile from the village. The historic Port Town of Sandwich is approx. 3.5 miles East of Ash, whilst Canterbury is approx. 10 miles to the West. The general area is well served by bus, rail and road connectivity.


The site forms part of a wider residential housing allocation area adopted in the Ash Neighbourhood plan 2021. A resolution to grant outline planning consent (under ref:22/01497) has been approved by Dover District Council for the erection of some 53 units subject to the signing of a Section 106 agreement. A copy of the draft agreement can be made available upon request. The sellers will retain plot 1, (an existing Victorian Dethatched house,) together with the property showing plots 51,52&53 We understand the Council have placed a Temporary TPO on 6 small trees on the site, but we understand this does not interfere with the proposed layout. However, we understand there is a TPO on the hedge fronting Sandwich Road but approval has been given to remove the section to create the access as per the proposed layout. There will be a requirement for the existing 30 mph Limit to be relocated to accommodate the new access and a new pull in bay for buses on the opposite side of the road must be provided. Further documentation may be obtained via the Dover District Council Planning Portal for ref:22/01497.

Further information is available on Dover District Council's Portal, under ref: 22/01497.
