In accordance with the Swale Local Plan Review 2021 allocation, the Duchy has drawn together an emerging masterplan to deliver 2,500 homes and an aspiration to provide for 2,500 jobs. The proposals are to bring forward a very high quality, sustainable, landscape-led, mixed use settlement that will become a thriving new urban extension to the town.

3 Local Centres providing services and jobs are provided across the masterplan providing services and facilities within a 5 min walk for all residents.
