We welcome the submission of revised plans and are pleased that the Applicants have
responded to our previous representation by confirming that Phase 2 of the development
will comprise the office conversation. The proposal, set out in the Town Council
presentation, confirming that the conversion will provide eleven smaller 1 & 2 bed units
overcomes our concerns that an unbalanced housing mix was proposed. This is a positive
The proposed office conversion is not included in the application although parking allocated
for the apartments has been marked on the Site Plan. This binds the office conversion into
the application. The combined proposal is for 20 homes which are to be provided on one
site which comprises a single planning unit allocated for development in the emerging
Faversham Neighbourhood Plan.
We are delighted that the applicants have stated in the Town Council presentation that 7 of
the apartments could be allocated as affordable housing and welcome this 35% provision

which fully meets the policy requirement. Can we suggest that this offer is incorporated
as an obligation in a S106 Agreement?
Subject to this caveat the Faversham Community Land Trust are pleased to support this
