Two plans have been unveiled for a major mixed-use development on land off the busy A249 close to the Kent Showground.

Canterbury-based property development company Quinn Estates has put forward two scenarios for 155 acres of land next to the Kent Showground.

Quinn Estates has put forward different scenarios for 155 acres of mainly arable farmland and wooded areas next to the Kent Showground.

The site at Binbury Park also includes the former RAF Detling airfield, which closed in 1958, and the Detling Aerodrome Industrial Estate.

The first plan proposes 1,750 homes, 1.2 million sq ft of commercial space, a primary school and a pub. The second plan is for 2 million sq ft of business space and up to 30 acres for 350 homes.

Both plans include a new roundabout on the A249 and an upgraded entrance to the showground, alongside a hotel, park and ride and shops.

Before any applications can be made, environmental impact assessments must be carried out on the site to take into account such things as habitats, flooding and the plot’s history, which includes nearby listed Binbury Castle.

Cllr Lyle Cathcart, from Stockbury Parish Council, said: “The document submitted seems pretty comprehensive. As a parish council we cannot comment on anything until an application is submitted. Everything is up in the air at the moment.

“The site sits in the area of outstanding natural beauty and traditionally Maidstone Borough Council has rejected plans for the land.”
