The option on the 13-acre greenfield site builds on the success of its current development in the village, The Sycamores, where 100 new three, four and five-bedroom homes are being built on a 10-acre site, situated off Roundwell.
Rupert Home, Development Director at Dandara, said: “There is substantial demand for housing in and around Maidstone, which has further increased in recent months as home working has been embraced. This, coupled with a distinct shortage in supply, has created a housing need in the area greater than ever.
Rupert continues: “Dandara specialise in promoting and developing quality housing in sensitive, attractive and desirable areas, such as Bearsted. As part of our planning and design process we extensively engage with the community and work with the local authority to deliver a unique scheme that enhances and complements its surroundings, delivers private housing at accessible price points, provides much needed affordable housing, and contributes to local amenity and infrastructure needs.”
