What Quinn's are doing?

Quinn’s have plans to construct ‘Highsted Park’ (www.highstedpark.co.uk), a vast development project, which is not included in the new Local Plan but does not prevent Quinn’s submitting a speculative planning application to Swale Borough Council.

Plans change over time, but none more so than the proposed Highsted Park scheme for thousands of new houses, expanded Kent Science Park and a new motorway junction and link road.

In the current version of the plan the housing numbers are back up to 9,250 following a period where they had been reduced, but the notable change is in the location of the housing and a bid to merge Bapchild, Teynham and Rodmersham.

  • Creation of ‘Highsted Park’ and ‘Oakwood Valley’ housing developments
  • 9,250 homes, including 1,850 ‘affordable’ properties
  • A 'privately-funded' Junction 5a on the M2  
  • Creation of a Southern Relief Road intersecting villages
  • Completion of the Northern Relief Road
  • 4 new primary schools and 1 new secondary school (subject to demand *)
  • New major primary care facilities (subject to demand *)
  • 520 acres of new publicly accessible parks and amenities
  • Sports hubs and a new home for Sittingbourne Football Club

The webinars were recorded and can be viewed at:   www.highstedpark.co.uk/webinar
