Stone Hill Park is the name of the proposed mixed use scheme for the former Manston Airport site in Thanet.
Our vision for this historic location, respects the past but focuses on the future.
A place of great heritage, but also a place of great opportunity for East Kent.
We will deliver up to 2,500 homes to meet the district’s future housing needs. A wide range of housing types are planned – from starter homes to specialist housing for older people.
We will deliver an advanced manufacturing focused business park with some distribution/storage and office space included.
We will deliver large scale – indoor and outdoor – sports and recreational facilities of significance, with the former runway becoming the focal point for a network of parkland, trails and outdoor space.
We will deliver on our promise to honour the history of this site, with the Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Museum and RAF museum at the heart of a new heritage hub.

Most parts of the site will be a five minute drive (or 20 minute walk) from a new Parkway railway station, offering high speed services to and from the capital, as well as stations to Dover.
