Stone Hill Park is the team behind exciting mixed-use proposals for the former Manston Airport site. Our proposed new settlement will not only answer Thanet’s growing housing needs, but deliver thousands of jobs and put Manston on the map as a regional sports and leisure destination. From a new country park to an improved aviation heritage component, our proposals will open a successful new chapter for Manston and a prosperous one for Thanet.
Our plan is for up to 4,000 homes to meet the district’s future housing needs built over 20 years. A wide range of housing types are planned – from starter homes to specialist housing for older people.
Our plan includes an advanced manufacturing focused business park creating thousands of jobs and training opportunities.
Our plan includes a new country park and the East Kent Sports Village, including a surf lake and Kent's only Olympic sized swimming pool
Our plan is to transform key parts of the main runway into an exciting recreational and events space, which will be set alongside new and enhanced heritage attractions.
This iconic site 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 proposed Thanet Parkway railway station, offering high speed services to and from the capital, as well as stations to Dover.
