Project removed from LGF programme

The purchase and development of an ex-MOD site in Sevenoaks to open up housing, employment and commercial development in an area where availability of such sites is extremely low.

Project update

This project was considered by Accountability Board on 15th February 2019 and the decision was made to remove the project from the LGF Programme. The project would have enabled the purchase and development of the site in Sevenoaks. However, in 2017 there was a change in land ownership at the Fort Halsted site, with the new land owners not expected to leave the site until 2021.  As a result, the project cannot be progressed within the Growth Deal period.

The project will continue to be developed and should remain a priority for future funding opportunities.

The £1.53m of LGF funding which was provisionally allocated to the project will be reallocated to LGF3b pipeline projects.
