Talking of Otterpool Park, the report states:

“Otterpool Park LLP has been progressing plans for this major new garden town, set within the countryside near Hythe. An application is due to be resubmitted for the first 8,500 homes, up to eight schools, community facilities, employment spaces and associated infrastructure. To be delivered over 30 years, subject to approvals, the project team is working to a start date of 2022.

“At the Local Plan Examination in Public the Planning Inspectors concluded that the submitted Core Strategy Review can be made sound by main modifications, providing confidence that Otterpool Park will secure allocation in the Local Plan. Detailed plans for Phase 1 were revealed in March. This key area of the garden town has 1,900 homes, the town centre and commercial area, Westenhanger station and a new Castle Park. This area will also contain two primary schools, community facilities, a leisure centre, shops and places to eat, drink and socialise.”
