Sites identified by Maidstone Borough Council in 2014 for possible future housing developments are shown on the plan below. Planning applications for 10 houses on H0-58 for 10 houses and H03-189 for 12 houses alongside Windmill Lane have been received by Maidstone Borough Council and have been opposed by Hollingbourne Parish Council. The Windmill Lane site has also be opposed by the Village Hall Committee and many local residents principally because of the limited access via a privately owned public footpath. This application was withdrawn in March 2017.
In addition four houses are presently under construction in Musket Lane.
It is understood that an application may be made for a retirement village to be built on H03-189 with access from Eyhorne Street via a driveway between Cotuam’s Hall and the Coachman’s House. No application has been made for H03-249.
