The Bradbourne Community

This website is designed to introduce The East Malling Trust’s proposals to deliver Bradbourne, a new community of up to 1,600 new homes, with facilities including a new primary school, community facilities and open space, on approximately 53 hectares of land.

The proposed site is located between Hermitage Lane and Kiln Barn Road, bounded by the Maidstone East railway line to the south and Quarry Wood Industrial Estate to the north. It sits within East Malling and Larkfield Parish, Ditton Parish and Aylesford Parish. It was previously included as a site identified as an Area of Opportunity for residential development in the Submission Version of the Draft Tonbridge and Malling Local Plan.

The site is promoted by The East Malling Trust. The proposed development would utilise a parcel of sustainably located land enclosed largely by man-made boundaries.
