Waterside Park plans submitted

A planning application has been submitted to Maidstone Borough Council by Gallagher Group and two Maidstone-based companies for a new business park at Junction 8 of the M20.

Waterside Park would, if granted permission, create manufacturing facilities, warehousing and logistics centres, alongside high quality international headquarters for the two firms.

Twenty six acres of the 42 acre site would be developed and occupied by the headquarters for Automotive Distributors Ltd (ADL) and Scarab Sweepers Ltd, alongside other companies, with the remaining area put over to soft landscaping and common areas. The site is boundaried by woodland, ponds, Old Mill Road and the A20 so cannot be extended.

The two companies, currently both based in Marden, have announced that they wish to invest at Waterside Park and relocate their combined current workforce of 450. It is anticipated that by the time both are able to move they will employ more than 600 people, with the vast majority living in the Maidstone area.

The Gallagher Group is being advised by DHA Planning and Maxim.
