Sod turning celebrates start of Military Road, Folkestone

We welcomed Cllr Monk, Leader of Shepway Council, to our Military Road site today and invited him to ‘turn the sod’ to celebrate the start of this major housing project in Folkestone.

Delivering 41 new homes, Military Road is bringing back into use a site that housed the former Shepway Resource Centre, a building which has been stood empty for years.

Shepway are taking 35 of the new affordable homes, which will be offered to those on the waiting list and is the latest in the Council’s new build programme to get underway. The remaining 6 are being kept by Jenner and their development arm Leath Park Developments.

Martin Sandall, MD for Jenner said “Jenner are delighted to see this partnership opportunity come to fruition after the significant efforts of both parties”.
