The scheme, designed by Clague Architects on behalf of Ashford-based GSE Developments is for two, three and four-bedroom homes on a site formerly owned by Prima Windows in the village. The design of the new homes is based on a contemporary re-interpretation of the parish’s architectural vernacular which comprises a number of very fine Arts & Crafts houses.

Karl Elliott, partner at Clague Architects, said: “The proposals are sensitive to the village’s existing buildings, in particular the four Grade-II listed houses close to the site, and the conservation area.

“We are collating the feedback received at the exhibition and where concerns were raised, over highways issues for example, we will work to address those in our final planning application.”

The site is identified in Dover District Council’s Local Plan as suitable for 40 new homes.

Josh Healey of GSE Developments, said: “We think we have an attractive scheme which will help to sustain the village of Nonington. We were very pleased with the positive comments we received.
