The site in the popular Radnor Park area of Folkestone opposite the large area of recreation space with it’s attractive lake and café. It is approximately 0.75 miles north of Folkestone Town Centre. It is located to the rear of the former Royal Victoria Hospital and area for the proposed development  extends to c. 0.42 ha (c. 1.04 acres) in size. The site gently slopes and is generally regular in shape. The former hospital buildings to the front are undergoing conversion to residential apartments along with some new build blocks. It is understood the majority of these will be private rental along with the necessary affordable tenure units. For the whole site. Vehicular access road is from Radnor Park Road. 

Folkestone & Hythe District Council granted Planning Permission on the 12th November 2020 under planning reference 20/0532/FH for Residential Development at Royal Victoria Hospital site consisting of 19 no. 4 & 5 bed houses and 19 no. 1 & 2 bed apartments including associated external works.

The apartment element of the scheme is already under construction and is not included in the sale. The 19 no. houses have been designed by Hollaway architects and are laid out in crescent around a private gated access road. The scheme comprises 10 no. 4 beds, 6 no. 5 beds and 3 no. 4/5 beds. All of the units provide accommodation over the ground and three upper floors with the ground floors dedicated to an open plan kitchen/dining/ lounge area. Several of the units provide bonus rooms on the third floor that could be bedroom space or for some other use. Externally each unit provides 1 no. parking space to the front and a private rear garden to the rear. In addition there are 2 no. visitor parking spaces. The site is at a higher level compared to the surrounding land and there are several retaining walls proposed to the northern, southern and western boundaries. The land to the south is at a lower level and it is understood the retaining wall along this boundary will be constructed  as part of works to the front already underway.

It is anticipated that access road will be built to an adoptable standard, but will remain in private ownership of the site. Vehicular access across the access road will be dedicated to the proposed new houses, but pedestrian rights of access are required for some of the surrounding properties.
