Kennett Community Land Trust
Kennett CLT have elected a Board of Trustees and have over 130 members recruited to the CLT, which was legally registered in November 2016. Outline planning permission is expected in spring 2019 for a sustainable, lower-density ‘garden village’ style mixed-use development on land off Station Road in Kennett, to the north of the train station.
This exciting new development – Kennett Garden Village will provide 500 high-quality new homes, including much needed affordable homes for people living and/ or working in the parish. As well as new homes, a new enterprise park will create local employment and new car park facility for the developing station.
In the heart of the village there will be a new school for the Staploe Education Trust, and neighbourhood scale retail facilities such as a shop, café, surgery and community office all located around a new village square and a 3 acre village green. In addition to the market and affordable homes, part of the development will be designed with older residents in mind, with a range of homes that will appeal to the active retired, and those that need extra care.
