Town Council to Meet to Discuss Land Gift, to Block Further Development, at Westwell Court

14th Oct 2018

Tenterden Town Council's planning committee has agreed that non-planning councillors and the council’s land agent should meet developers applying to build a nursing home and assisted living retirement village at Westwell Court. They will discuss the offer of gifting the town a multi-acre plot to prevent it from further development.


If the gift is accepted, it would prevent the gifted plot, bordering on the cemetery, Rogersmead and Westwell Court, from being subject to additional planning applications.


The planning committee emphasised that the meeting with the consortium behind the Westwell Court development would not discuss their planning application, which is due for consideration by both the Town Council and Ashford Borough Council next month.
