Spitals Cross community improvements

Thank you to everyone to viewed and commented on our revised plans to provide additional parking, a new Fircroft Tenants’ & Residents’ Association (FTRA) Club, community shop plus other improvements on the Spitals Cross Estate in Edenbridge.

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 in April 2022, we 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, a new, modern community shop and other improvements including better signage and landscaping. The new homes would pay towards the community improvements.

From 7 to 14 December 2022, we asked for residents' views our revised proposals. We are now considering all of the comments before we lodge a planning application for the improvements in the New Year.
