Planning approval given for Kent shopping centre revamp

September 11, 2019 by NSC in Weekly News
Specialist regeneration developer, U+I has secured planning on appeal to demolish part of the Swanley Shopping Centre in Kent to construct several blocks of flats.

U+I’s mixed-use Swanley Square development involves plans to build 300 homes, 4,600m² of commercial space and a multi-storey car park.

Previously, Sevenoaks District Council had rejected proposals due to what it described as the over-intensification of development of this site.

U+I’s resubmitted plans have satisfied any doubts and the company has argued that the extra homes and improved amenities would increase footfall into Swanley Shopping Centre.

Matthew Weiner, CEO of U+I, commented: “The Inspector’s decision found strongly in favour of this imaginative, mixed-use development in Swanley, which is located less than thirty minutes from Central London in an area of huge potential.

“It is a strong demonstration of our integrated regeneration business plan and one of many such opportunities within our portfolio, as we look to maximise the value of our assets.”
