The incoming purchaser of the site will be expected to provide the access and services up to the care home site boundary.The outline application was refused at Dover District Council's Planning Committee on 23rd August 2018. The application was reported with an Officers' recommendation that planning permission should be granted. However, Councillors chose not to accept the recommendations of their Officers and refused planning permission on the sole basis that the proposal would allegedly have an unacceptable impact on highway safety; and cumulatively, would cause a severe impact on the local highway network. An appeal was lodged which addressed this sole reason for refusal and justified the grant of planning permission for the proposed development. The promoter, Greenlight Developments was successful at appeal and outline planning permission was granted on 4th July 2019 for up to 48 dwellings and a 64 bedroom care home.Details of the original planning application can be found on Dover District Council's Planning Portal click link below: Dover District Council - 17/01345 Land at Churchfield Farm, The Street, Sholden, CT14 0ALThe site lies to the west of the Cinque Port town of Deal, in the village of Sholden in a semi-rural setting just off the A258, providing easy access to Sandwich further up the coast.Nearby, the bustling and vibrant seaside town of Deal with its award-winning high street, independent shops cafes and pubs sit alongside a photogenic seafront and pier.The town also offers a selection of high street multiples in addition to a number of highly regarded state and independent schools.Mainline railway stations are available at both Deal and Walmer.
