Building the future of Kent

Building the future of Kent

Outside of London, Kent sits in the top 5 counties that have the highest population within the UK. This means quality homes, commercial property and infrastructure are of vital importance. With many families moving out of the capital looking for a better quality of life, demand is growing in Kent.

Kent’s Construction Outlook

While no county can be immune to changes in the economic environment, Kent’s demand for property and commercial units has stayed fairly buoyant. With many major residential schemes planned, retail and commercial development continuing and large scale regeneration plans underway, construction remains at the heart of Kent’s progress. Major house-builders such as Barratt, Bellway, Taylor Wimpey and Redrow are among the key developers within the county alongside more bespoke construction companies such as Quinn Estates and George Wilson Developments.

Working in partnerships to ensure the success of the county

Locate in Kent works in partnership with many high-profile organisations to offer potential investors a bespoke, uniquely tailored approach. We recognised the importance that high quality commercial property played in attracting new businesses to the county which is why we set up the Kent Developers Group (KDG). The KDG is an association of owners and developers of the main development sites in Kent and Medway who meet to discuss construction issues, planning requirements, sustainability and design.
