Barratt Homes has recently handed over its most recent Section 106 funding to Dover District Council (DDC). The funds, totalling £208,000, were agreed as part of the ongoing development at Aylesham Village, with the next Barratt Kent phase of the development due to launch later in the year.
The most recent payment by Barratt Homes is £208,000, which will be invested into the local economy over the next few years.
This will include: £169,772 toward adult social services, £3,807 for independent living technology which will help vulnerable people improve independence, £28,234 toward libraries, and finally, £7,192 toward the Special Protection Area (SPA).
Since work on the site began, the wider consortium at Aylesham Village has previously invested £5,832,030 into public services for a growing community such as education, highways and healthcare.
Natalie Perry, sales and marketing director for Barratt Kent, said: “As a sustainable housebuilder that is creating new homes to live in across Kent, we want to be able to work with, and not against, local communities when building in their areas.
“That is why we have worked hard to stimulate the economy in Aylesham over the past few years and are delighted that we have been able to officially mark the next instalment in our community investment commitments.
“When we build, we invest in the communities and people that will be affected by our developments to help all aspects of that chosen area flourish in the long term.
“Over the next few years, we will continue to work with diverse community groups across Aylesham, as well as investing in the surrounding infrastructure.”
