Sites identified by Maidstone Borough Council in 2014 for possible future housing developments are shown on the plan below. Planning applications for 12 houses on H0-58 and on H03-189 for 10 houses alongside Windmill Lane have been received by Maidstone Borough Council and are being considered by Hollingbourne Parish Council. A previous application for the Windmill Lane site was opposed by the Parish Council, the Village Hall Committee and many local residents principally because of the limited access via a privately owned public footpath. The initial application 12 houses in for Windmill Lane was withdrawn in March 2017.
Concern has been expressed by the Village Hall Committee because of the refusal of EI Group PLC to renew the Village Hall lease which expired in August 2016 pending a planning decision on the 10 houses. EI Group PLC owns part of Windmall Lane including the access the to the proposed houses and the Village Hall Committee have sought counsel’s opinion.
In addition four houses are presently under construction in Musket Lane. An application for a further two has been made.
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.
