A firm of developers has revealed plans to build up to 43 homes for the over-55s on a greenfield site just to the north of Gillingham.
Serenity Parks is hoping to put the bungalows off the B 3092 and near the turn off to Colesbrook in what is currently agricultural land next to the footpath to Milton-on-Stour primary school.
On their website the company says it would protect views in a landscape which is close to where John Constable painted Purns Mill.
It says: ‘Generous open green spaces incorporating sustainable urban drainage and native wildflower planting, as well as new trees, would be included.
‘Views from Colesbrook would be protected by the generous buffer zone. A new safe access would be created to the south of the development, linking it with the existing built up area of Gillingham.’
It adds: ‘Up to 43 accessible, inherently affordable bungalow park homes would be developed, creating a new community for older people in Gillingham.’
The company also says that it welcomes feedback on its website about its plans.
