This apparently took place in late February 2019. It is likely that DHA Planning, the landowners (Alan Firmin Ltd, Marden Turf and John Carpenter, a local farmer), Countryside Properties reps, and Maidstone Borough Council planning agents were in attendance on-site to discuss the proposals.
Call For Sites
Currently where we are at now. Maidstone Borough Council are looking for possible sites to develop over the coming years, and the 'Call for Sites' process is what they call this.Essentially they are asking landowners to declare their interest to them - Maidstone Borough Council will then weigh up each of the submitted Sites and decide which to investigate further, and which to rule out. The Call for Sites period ends in late May 2019, it is likely that many weeks/months of silence will follow after that ends, before anything else is heard, giving Maidstone Borough Council time to investigate each Site across the Borough, of which Marden will only be one of possibly up to 10.If the Council decides to proceed with the "Marden New Town" proposal, then it will likely to go a full planning application or outline planning application some time in Summer 2019. But don't delay - it's time to act now.
