Plan for 14 extra flats at Calverley Park Gardens

Fourteen more flats could be built on the 5 Calverley Park Gardens block in Tunbridge Wells if plans are passed.

A developer has applied to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council for permission to extend the building.

A statement reads: ‘This represents a significant enhancement for residential development at the site.
‘The proposal secures a number of benefits; including the enhancements to the existing property, wider landscaping improvements at the site and an additional 14 residential units.

‘This is particularly significant in light of a borough council who cannot demonstrate a ‘five year housing’ land supply.’

This week neighbours have been busy commenting on the application, which is still being processed by the council.
The majority of these comments are negative, with residents feeling the added apartments will create an appearance too large to be in keeping with the area.

Christian Nouyou, of Calverley Park Gardens, told the Times: ‘The proposed development at 5 Calverley Park, which is still under planning review, is quite simply a monster.

‘This is not a simple extension, this is something more akin to a hotel development near an industrial park.

‘It is an ongoing subject very close to the town’s residents and yet these continued developments seem out of control and beyond any residents concerns.’

The council is currently reviewing the plans.
