Spitals Cross community improvements

You can view and comment on our revised plans to create additional parking, provide a new Fircroft Tenants’ & Residents’ Association (FTRA) Club and community shop plus other improvements on the Spitals Cross Estate in Edenbridge at two drop-in sessions and online from 7 December 2022.

The club and shop were built in the 1960s and have served the community well for the best part of 60 years. But both facilities are now in need of improvement. Parking has also become a problem in recent years. Few people owed a car when the Estate was constructed, but now the area is congested with residents struggling to park their vehicles.

Following a consultation earlier this year, we have improved our initial proposals having taken on board residents’ comments. The new plans include fewer new homes and additional parking spaces for residents throughout the Estate, improved play provision, a community hall that enables flexible use and other improvements including better signage and landscaping. The new homes would pay towards the community improvements.

We're keen hear your views on our updated plans.

You can find out more and have your say at two drop in sessions (no appointment necessary) at the FTRA Club on Farmstead Drive on:

  • Wednesday 7 December 12.15pm to 7pm
  • Saturday 10 December 10am to 3pm

An online survey seeking your views will also be available on this page from Wednesday 7 December until 5pm on Wednesday 14 December 2022.

We are proposing to lodge a planning application for the improvements in the New Year once we have reviewed residents’ latest feedback.
