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.
We submitted our planning application and supporting documentation to Thanet District Council on 31 May. These are available to view in the planning section of the council's website. Don't forget to use the ref: OL/TH/16/0550, if using the site's planning search function.
Interested parties will have the opportunity to provide feedback, through the online portal, from 7 June 2016 until 8 July 2016 initially. The application is expected to be discussed by TDC's planning committee at the end of the year.

Stone Hill Park is perfectly located at the heart of Thanet, with excellent road connections allowing fast transit to the rest of Kent and beyond. London is less than two hours away by car. 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.
