A project to build 850 homes, a school and retail at Westwood will be phased over 10 years.
Greenacre (Thanet) Ltd revealed details of the Westwood Village at two public consultations this month.
The firm says it is proposing new homes, including affordable homes, 20 acres of public open space, retirement homes, a primary school and a mix of commercial and retail properties including doctors, dentists and vets.
The 23 acre site runs from the Toby Carvery between Haine Road to the East, across to Manston Court Road to the West, taking open fields extending from the Orbit properties on the Star Lane Link Road, and South to Valley Road on the borders of Bradgate Caravan Park.
The plans will include a new inner rink road and a spine road, health facilities, a convenience store, two-form primary school, possibly a hotel, restaurant and pub, homes and open space.
The presentation by Greenacre says: “The vision for Westwood Village is to deliver a sustainable new residential-lead mixed use community that meets the needs of both existing and future residents.
“One of the proposed new links is a new route from Manston Road to Haine Road. This new route will reduce traffic flows on Manston Court Road, with the aim of reducing conflict and safety concerns associated with rat running on Manston Court Road, to the benefit of local residents and all road users.”
The housing will be split into five categories:
Country villas with large gardens
Modest homes for young families
Country courtyard homes
Urban edge terraced homes
High density townhouses
Open spaces will include playing fields and allotments.
The first phase of the development is expected to start in 2018, completing each phase sequentially with an aim to finalise Westwood Village by 2028.
