Stone Hill Park (SHP) have agreed a deal in principle with local housing association, Optivo, for the sale of the first 400 new homes on their Thanet site.
Stone Hill Park and Optivo will work together on a detailed plan for the first phase that will also include a new school and infrastructure to serve the local area.
An outline planning application setting out enhanced proposals for the former Manston Airport is currently out for statutory consultation by Thanet District Council, with a decision expected later this year. If approved, the detailed planning application would then follow.
Optivo will lead on the design for this first phase project and will be holding consultation events with local residents to gather feedback and ensure plans are locally in-keeping.
