Edenbridge residents are invited to view and comment on early ideas to improve and manage green spaces and new off-road parking, a new community shop and some new housing on the Stangrove Estate at an exhibition in January.
The Stangrove Estate was built in the 1950s and 1960s and was not designed for the number of vehicles trying to park there today.
Residents have told Sevenoaks District Council there are not enough suitable parking spaces and many drivers are resorting to parking on and damaging green spaces.
Sevenoaks District Council are proposing to provide 47 off-road car parking spaces in response to residents’ concerns. They are also setting out ideas to better manage trees and open spaces and to provide a new, bigger community shop and some new homes.
An independent tree specialist has also surveyed the trees on the Estate and found a number may be damaging the foundations of nearby homes. To protect these properties, Sevenoaks District Council are proposing to remove or significantly reduce these trees.
You can find out more by attending the exhibition taking place at Edenbridge Leisure Centre on:
- Saturday 27 January 2018 from 10am to 3pm
- Tuesday 30 January 2018 from 4pm to 9pm
You can also have your say by completing a survey that will be available online from Saturday 27 January 2018 on the Sevenoaks District Council website using the link http://www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/stangrove
