Proposed Affordable Rural Housing in Chiddingstone Parish
What Is Proposed?
We are proposing to design, build and manage a small development at Chequers Hill of eight affordable rented homes for local people. The scheme would comprise the following homes:
2x one bedroom flats;
2x two bedroom flats;
3x two bedroom houses; and
1x three bedroom house
In addition, 3x three bedroom open market homes are proposed. These will provide valuable cross-subsidy for the affordable homes.

Please refer to our FAQs to learn how this site was selected.
The proposed site is located to the West of Chequers Barn. Access would be from the existing drive that connects Chequers Barn with the B2027. The proposed site is largely secluded from view from the North, South and West by established trees and hedges. The existing office building largely screens the site from the East. The development site is approximately 1.2 acres in size and comprises a relatively flat grassed field that is not farmed. The existing public right of way connects the site to the footpath network to the West.
