Plans to develop Waterbrook, the 140 acre site near junction 10 of the M20 at Ashford, have been given the unanimous go-ahead

Ensure work with DHA to develop a successful EIA for this large infilled reclamation site.

The plans see the doubling of HGV parking capacity at the Ashford International Truckstop, as well as new commercial property expected to create nearly 1,000 jobs, plus retail space, 400 homes and parkland.

The proposals for Waterbrook, the land owned by Ashford-based GSE Group, were unanimously approved by Ashford Borough Council.

DHA took the lead on the planning application, environmental impact assessment and outline master-planning for the site with Ensure addressing ground conditions and hydrogeology, including soil gas, old truck stop UST’s and the proposed new Petrol Filling Station .

Darrell Healey, Managing Director of GSE Group, said: “This is great news for Ashford and Kent and is the combined efforts of our team working closely with the council’s planners. It will create a new business space and new homes for Ashford, as well as securing much-needed parking for lorries and new homes.
