Sevenoaks Gasholder Station

Area: 13,265m2
Status: Planning
Type: Residential
Client: SGN Place
This development of 136 new homes celebrates the historic industrial townscape precedent of the former Gasholders while making a sustainable and viable contribution to the area’s housing targets without compromising vital open space in the greenbelt.

This site is one of the few major development sites identified in the Sevenoaks area as appropriate for the delivery of housing. The gasholders themselves were an important industrial landmark that stood for nearly 100 years as a prominent local landmark. This development introduces a mix of studio, 1 bed, 2 bed, 3 bed apartments and townhouses within 3 building types; rotunda, blocks and townhouses.

Maximising views from the site to the wildlife reserve to the west, this development enhances the public footpath that bisects the site and introduces a large shared public amenity space at its heart. Neighbouring residential properties have been respected by stepping the building forms down and away from site boundaries.
