Welcome to Aylesham Garden Village

Set halfway between the cathedral city of Canterbury and the port of Dover on the Kent coast, Aylesham Garden Village will comprise a total of 1,200 new homes featuring a mixture of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom properties. Aylesham is the largest village in east Kent, offering the feel of modern urbanism in the rural idyll.

Each home planned for Aylesham Garden Village has been designed with facades in keeping with the character of the village. The attractive and thoughtful house designs will integrate, yet add an exciting contemporary edge, to the development. Designs focus on providing generous space, good levels of parking and private gardens, reflecting the ‘Garden Village’ ethos.

Planning for the project was granted in 2012. The build process began in 2014 and the first phase was launched during 2014-2015.

The first 200 homes were completed and occupied by the end of 2016. Planning permission has been granted to both builders, Barratt Homes and Persimmon Homes, to build the next stage of the development, phase 1B,consisting of 572 more homes. Up until the end of April 2018, a total of 325 homes had been built and occupied with around another 80 under construction.

For more information on the project’s key milestones please visit the Project Management page.
