Design Guidance

- The site forms part of the setting of the Sevenoaks High Street Conservation Area and the opportunity should be taken to re-develop the current building to a development of a suitable scale, form, materials and detailing which enhances the setting of the conservation area.

- Active retail/town centre uses should be incorporated at least on the ground floor on the South Park frontage of this scheme. Residential uses are likely to be in the form of apartments above the ground floor, duplexes or townhouses.

- If one element of the site is available for redevelopment in advance of the other, the development should be designed in such a way so as not to preclude the future integration of development, or the operation of the existing functions.

- The retention of the Post Office counter facility in a prominent location in the town centre will be required.

- Servicing, parking and access arrangements will need careful consideration once the mix of uses is determined. Development should improve pedestrian linkages to the town centre.

Design Guidance

 

General

- Development of this site will only be permitted where it is linked to the timely provision of evidenced infrastructure, supported by the relevant infrastructure provider(s).

- The specifics of any scheme should be developed in conjunction with the local community including through the Draft Sevenoaks Neighbourhood Development Plan

- Provision of public open space will be required to support the development. The type and layout of open space will be a matter for consultation with the local community but should include amenity greenspace and childrens’ playspace.

- The size and location of the site make it suitable for a variety of housing types and sizes, both market and affordable, to meet identified needs within the local community. This should include housing suitable for older people.

- Multiple access points will be required to serve the development. Any scheme will need to be supported by a transport assessment, setting out any required mitigation measures, safe access for all and focusing on sustainable transport solutions

 

Placemaking and design

- Respect and respond sensitively to the existing features within the site that are positive and that make the site unique. This includes the existing watercourses and the wider potential for water-bodies within the development area.

- Higher density development should be focussed towards the south-western part of the site, with a view to placing as many homes as possible within walking and cycling distance of Bat & Ball station and the local services and shopping.  

- Retain and integrate the historic buildings associated with the Greatness estate at the southwest of the site. These provide an important connection with the history of the site and could be suitable for community / civic / employment uses, relating to public space and providing a focus for activity. Their position on higher ground and in close proximity to the station and existing movement network also gives support for a local centre to be located here.

Sustainable movement

- Create safe, attractive and direct walking and cycling routes which facilitate easy access to local facilities including Bat & Ball station and the retail and employment focus at Vestry Road to the west of the site.

- Establish a network of connected streets which provide direct walking and cycling routes within the new development that are well integrated into existing routes and movement patterns.

- Greatness Lane provides an important walking and cycling link from the new development towards the station and the wider urban area. Off-site improvements will be sought to improve walking and cycling facilities to enhance this link, including addressing the issue of parked cars blocking the pavements.  

- Pedestrian connections to Bat & Ball station are currently inhospitable, indirect or both.  Options to establish high quality and direct connections via Queen’s Drive through the redevelopment of the trading estate opposite the station should be promoted.

- The existing railway crossing at the western end of Watercress Drive is an important link to the employment and shopping west of the railway.  Walking and cycling routes should be established to provide direct connections with this, and the bridge itself improved to provide a fully accessible crossing of the railway at the western end of Watercress Drive.  

- Trinity school is the closest secondary school and is within walking and cycling distance for the site.  Improvements to connecting routes will seek to promote sustainable and independent travel.  

- Vehicle access into the site should avoid creating rat-run connections.  

- Ensure a hierarchy of routes so that important routes are clearly identifiable. Concentrate active uses along main streets and establish landmarks, focal points and gateways to help people find their way.

Landscape and green infrastructure

- Use the natural features of the site to inform development and integrate it into its wider setting. The topography, geology, hedgerows, trees and watercourses can be used to reinforce local distinctiveness. The possibility of reinstating the watercourse and watercress beds through the southwest could be explored, to help establish a variety of open space, support biodiversity, manage waterflow, build flood resilience and contribute to a greater sense of place.

- Ensure that development does not adversely impact the SSSI designation which covers part of the site.

- Landscaping and planting should be integrated into the development and will be required to provide a buffer and defensible boundary in order to blend the development into the countryside in a natural and sensitive way.

Design Guidance

 

Placemaking and design

- Respect and respond sensitively to the existing features within the site that are positive and that make the site unique. In particular, development on this site might capture the spirit of the regular pattern of glasshouses on the site.

- New development should front onto the public footpath across the north side of the site which connects towards Swanley Village, identifying this as a public route.

Sustainable movement

- Create safe, attractive and clear walking and cycling routes which minimise distances between the site and Hextable village, Swanley town and Swanley Station.

- Proper pedestrian and cycling facilities need to be introduced along Highlands Hill, connecting to the Fiveways Junction. This is to ensure that the development can be safely accessed on foot or by cycle to enable sustainable and independent travel.

Landscape and green infrastructure

- Explore ways of reflecting the site’s existing use as a nursery into proposals for development. This could include incorporating a particularly strong planting approach.

Design Guidance

 

General

 - Development of this site will only be permitted where it is linked to the timely provision of evidenced infrastructure, supported by the relevant infrastructure provider(s).

- The specifics of any scheme should be developed in conjunction with the local community including through the Neighbourhood Plan process where applicable.

- The size and location of the site make it suitable for a variety of housing types and sizes, both market and affordable, to meet identified needs within the local community. This should include housing suitable for older people.

- Multiple access points will be required to serve the development. Any scheme will need to be supported by a transport assessment, setting out any required mitigation measures, safe access for all and focusing on sustainable transport solutions.

Placemaking and design

- Respect and respond sensitively to the existing features within the site that are positive and that make the site unique. Fort Farningham, a designated Scheduled Monument and of historic military significance, should be protected, enhanced and better presented in any development proposal.

- The new settlement will be located on a plateau at the top of the hill with the topography largely eliminating views from the villages in the valley bottom.  Development should step back from the eastern edge to limit its impact on the setting of the Eynsford and Farningham conservation areas.

- Consider the impact of development on views from across the valley and at other high points in the surrounding area. A distinctive positive approach to townscape, including an identifiable landmark at the centre of the development should be considered.  

- The proposed settlement should contain sufficient shops and community facilities to meet day to day needs.

Sustainable movement

- Establish a network of connected streets which prioritise walking and cycling over private car use for short trips within the development.  

- Existing public rights of way or historic footpaths which cross the site should provide the starting point for the development of a network of streets and spaces.

- Direct walking and cycling routes should be developed to Eynsford and Farningham. This recognises that the settlements will benefit each other through shared use of facilities, and also reflects the fact that Eynsford may be shorter and more attractive than the connection into Swanley.  

- Proposals should be developed for a clear and usable segregated walking and cycling connection into Swanley town and station.  This requires significant improvement at the M25 interchange to provide a connection which secondary school children can use independently.  

- Ensure a hierarchy of routes so that important routes are clearly identifiable.   Concentrate active uses along main routes and establish landmarks, focal points and gateways to help people find their way.

 

Landscape and green infrastructure

- Use the natural features of the site to inform development and integrate it into its wider setting. In particular the site benefits from significant mature trees around its edge, a characteristic which should be reinforced.  

- The origins of the site mean that it is a largely artificial landscape which lacks natural topography and the structure of hedgerows and mature field trees. Development proposals should seek to establish a context for design that takes a cue from the topography, hedgerows, geology and trees in the wider area to reinforce local distinctiveness by informing the layout, massing and landscape design of the development.

- A landscaped buffer will be required to protect residential amenity and provide benefits to biodiversity adjacent to the railway.

- Access to employment land should be taken from the existing access on Station Approach. Access to residential development should be taken from Greenfield. Safety enhancements such as signing and lining are likely to be required at the junction of Greenfield and Forge Croft. Safe and convenient links should be made to the footpath network to the south of the site.

General

- Development of this site will only be permitted where it is linked to the timely provision of evidenced infrastructure, supported by the relevant infrastructure provider(s).

- The specifics of any scheme should be developed in conjunction with the local community including through the Neighbourhood Plan process where applicable.

- Provision of public open space will be required to support the development. The type and layout of open space will be a matter for consultation with the local community but should include amenity greenspace and childrens’ playspace.

- The size and location of the site make it suitable for a variety of housing types and sizes, both market and affordable, to meet identified needs within the local community. This should include housing suitable for older people.

- Housing development should not be located in areas liable to flood and any scheme will need to be supported by a flood risk assessment.

- Multiple access points will be required to serve the development. Any scheme will need to be supported by a transport assessment, setting out any required mitigation measures, safe access for all and focusing on sustainable transport solutions.

 

Placemaking and design

- Development should respect and respond sensitively to the existing features within the site that are positive and that make the site unique. This site particularly benefits from strong belts of trees and a number of ponds

- Development should be fully integrated into the existing urban fabric by responding to the village character of Edenbridge in terms of scale, materials and layout.

- The development should be orientated towards denser development in locations which provide easy walking and cycling options to existing facilities.  Denser development should be focussed to the east of Edenbridge Station, supported by a new eastern access to the station.   

- New public buildings should be located to maximise their accessibility by sustainable means to reduce the need for car use and promote independent travel.  

Sustainable movement

- Establish a network of connected streets which prioritise walking and cycling over private car use for short trips within the development.  

- Proposals should include walking and cycling access improvements to Edenbridge station, including improved disabled access, and to the surrounding employment areas.  

- Walking and cycling links to Edenbridge High Street and local facilities such as the leisure centre and primary school should be delivered. This could include a new foot tunnel connection at the station which does not require ticket access. It should also include improvements to the bridge at Forge Croft so that it provides a safe and accessible connection.  

- Existing historic rights of way across the site should be maintained within the layout and continue to provide clear and direct walking and cycling routes.  

- Ensure a hierarchy of routes is created so that important routes are clearly identifiable.  Concentrate active uses along main routes and establish landmarks, focal points and gateways to help people find their way.

 

Landscape and green infrastructure

- Use the natural features of the site to inform development and integrate it into its wider setting. The topography, geology, hedgerows, trees and watercourses can be used to reinforce local distinctiveness and provide natural parameters for development. The brook which crosses through the site should form the basis for a green corridor.

- Existing hedgerows should be maintained to inform the structure of development proposals, given the importance of the closed-field network to local character.

Design Guidance

- New Ash Green village centre will be regenerated and the quality of the environment improved so that it more effectively meets the needs of the community. Development should retain a scale appropriate to the size of the community it is intended to serve and a form that respects the distinctive character of the settlement. Development should achieve a satisfactory relationship with the adjoining housing and open space.

- Proposals should include retail, employment and community facilities and services. Office space should be retained or provided in this central location. An element of residential development (in the form of apartments) should be included as part of the regeneration scheme.

- The scheme should provide improvements to the local centre public realm.

- Servicing, parking and access arrangements will need careful consideration once the mix of uses is determined and a Transport Assessment will be required. Parking should be re-provided as part of the scheme, including parking for residential units. The pedestrian environment should be designed to provide a safe and secure access incorporating security measures (such as the public realm overlooked by residential development) to deter crime, the fear of crime and antisocial behaviour.

- Developers will be required to demonstrate that there is adequate waste water capacity both on and off the site to serve the development and that it would not lead to problems for existing or new users. In some circumstances it may be necessary for developers to fund studies to ascertain whether the proposed development will lead to overloading of existing water infrastructure.

Design Guidance

 

Placemaking and design

- Proposals should respond thoughtfully to the concept and principles behind the development of New Ash Green and its neighbourhoods. SPAN housing aimed to achieve a social balance, attracting people of different ages and backgrounds. Principles for development emphasised homes that were well integrated into the natural environment and structured around communal open space.

- Retain and integrate the historic building sensitively into the site.

- Retain or re-provide existing office floorspace as part of a mixed use scheme.

- Homes should front streets and some green spaces to provide sociable and safe neighbourhoods.

- The possibility of homes facing outwards onto Knights Croft and the footpath that runs along the west of the site should be explored to integrate the site into the neighbourhoods on either side and improve the quality of the environment along these routes.

Sustainable movement

- Establish a network of connected streets which prioritise walking and cycling over private car use for short trips within the development.

- Proposals should especially consider safe and clear pedestrian and cycle routes to New Ash Green village centre. This might require improvement to the existing route that connects the shops with North Ash Road via Over Minnis.

- Principal vehicle access to the site will be from North Ash Road.

Landscape and green infrastructure.

- Use the natural features of the site to inform development and integrate it into its wider setting. The trees can be used to reinforce local distinctiveness.

- Proposals should respect the values of the original New Ash Green masterplan by incorporating communal landscaped spaces with planting and trees into development proposals.

Design Guidance

 

Placemaking and design

- Respect and respond sensitively to the existing features within the site that are positive and that make the site unique. The site is especially unique because of its natural landscape buffer that surrounds the site on all sides. Buffer required to protect the ancient woodland.                            

-Proposals could explore integrating a use within the site that benefits from the natural landscape buffer the site affords, such as a community activity centre or forest school.

 

Sustainable movement

- Establish a network of connected streets which prioritise walking and cycling over private car use for short trips within the development.

- Create safe, attractive and clear cycling and pedestrian routes which minimise distances between the site and local shops, services and Knockholt station. Proposals should especially consider improvements to the roundabout to the southwest of the site that accommodates footpaths and crossings for pedestrians and cyclists.

- Any opportunity to deliver a new pedestrian connection through to Highland Road or Charles Road to overcome the isolation of this site would be welcome.

 

Landscape and green infrastructure

- Use the natural features of the site to inform development and integrate it into its wider setting. The topography, geology, trees and ancient woodland can be used to reinforce local distinctiveness.

Design Guidance

- Site has outline planning permission for 450 residential dwellings and 27,000m2 business floorspace.

- The additional housing units must form part of a comprehensive redevelopment of the site to include replacement employment provision. This should be of an equivalent scale and skill level to that when the site was fully operational to ensure the District’s economy remains dynamic.- Any additional development proposed must conserve and enhance the AONB.

- Any additional development proposed will be required to be of high quality design and careful layout, provide a buffer to protect the ancient woodland, and protect priority habitats.

- Landscaping and planting should be integrated into the development and will be required to provide a buffer and defensible boundary in order to blend the development into the countryside in a natural and sensitive way.

- Respect and respond sensitively to the existing features within the site that are positive and that make the site unique. Fort Halstead, a designated Scheduled Monument and of historic military significance, should be protected, enhanced and better presented in any development proposal.

- Improve the provision and connectivity of green infrastructure including improvements to the Public Right of Way network.

- Multiple access points will be required to serve the development. Any scheme will need to be supported by a transport assessment, setting out any required mitigation measures, safe access for all and focusing on sustainable transport solutions.

- If one element of the site is available for redevelopment in advance of the other, the development should be designed in such a way so as not to preclude the future integration of development, or the operation of the existing functions.

Design Guidance

 

Placemaking and design

- Respect and respond sensitively to the existing features within the site that are positive and that make the site unique.

- The Howard Venue is a valued asset well used by the local community and should be retained on the site.

- The strong orthogonal character of the existing site should inform the development of future development structure through a simple gridded block structure.  

- The historic avenue of trees along the western boundary of the site provides an opportunity to create well defined built frontage facing onto landscape rather than the backs of buildings.   

- Be fully integrated into the existing urban fabric by responding to the village character of Hextable in terms of scale, materials and layout. Use the existing perimeter block street pattern to the east of the site on Egerton Avenue and New Road to inform the layout of housing on site.

Sustainable movement

- Establish a network of connected streets which prioritise walking and cycling over private car use for short trips within the development.

- The structure of the site should naturally extend the existing grain of streets.

- The development of the site provides a good opportunity to introduce a new pedestrian link from the elbow of Egerton Avenue towards the south and west to connect into the top of Swanley Park.

- Create safe, attractive and clear cycling and pedestrian routes which minimise distances between the site and local shops, services and public transport interchanges.

- Ensure a hierarchy of routes so that important routes are clearly identifiable.  

Landscape and green infrastructure

- Use the natural features of the site to inform development and integrate it into its wider setting. The topography, geology and trees can be used to reinforce local distinctiveness. In particular, the existing avenue of trees along the western edge of the site should help to provide a strong characteristic for the site.
