Chilmington Green is a new community of up to 5,750 quality homes, a district centre and community infrastructure. This will create over 1,000 jobs in the next 20 years, coming forward in four main phases with several hundred homes delivered per year.
The development will provide around £125m towards local amenities including:
- A secondary school
- Four primary schools
- Sports and leisure facilities
- Significant areas of public open space
These will be created as the phases of development come forward.
Outline planning permission was granted in 2016 with works on site well underway. The first residents moved into their homes in late 2019. Chilmington Green Primary School is now open, and outline plans for a secondary school have recently been approved.
