On Tuesday 26th April, at the Kennington United Church, three members of the Orchard Farm team, Adam Roake, Barbara Paagman and Honoré van Rijswijk, presented the initial ideas for our development. The audience were members of the planning committee of Kennington Community Council, our immediate neighbours and some of the wider Kennington community.
We met up with many engaged residents and had a positive discussion after the presentation. People’s concerns about a possible increase in traffic were answered and our plans for a development where walking and cycling will be encouraged above car use were welcomed.
The presentation included the location of the site, the benefits of self-build, the experience of our development partner Steenvlinder, the initial design ideas and the stages for the planning process.

By creating Orchard Farm as a self-build development, we are realising our ambition to change the way that housing is delivered in the UK. We’ll bring real choice to the housing market by enabling people to build their own home. Together with our self builders, we’ll create an exciting, sustainable community unlike any other found in Kent.
Stay tuned for more.
