Anderson took ownership of this impressive site in early 2018 and has since transformed the land to create one of Kent’s most prestigious and award-winning schemes, Faversham Lakes.
The local area is steeped in history, with the site itself containing one of the largest former gunpowder works along the north Faversham coastline.
When gunpowder production ceased in the 1930s, the land was quarried, resulting in a characterful patchwork of lakes, plateaus, and embankments.
A cluster of listed buildings associated with the gunpowder manufacturing process are set to be regenerated and repurposed as part of this development – creating a vibrant mixed-use hub and a legacy for both the town and the new homeowners.
As well as 330 homes – 99 of which are designated as affordable housing and will be managed by our affordable housing partners West Kent Housing Association – work is now underway to deliver the 50-acre country park.
Further community benefits will include a purpose-built school car park and new cycle way and footpaths.
Project Manager for the development is Alan Clarke and there are approximately 50 Anderson staff on site every day.
- Work began in January 2018
