The new Chief Executive of Golding Homes, Steph Goad, and Helen Whately, MP for Faversham and Mid Kent, have visited the location of the housing association’s most ambitious regeneration scheme.
Steph joined Golding Homes last month and this visit marked her first meeting with a local MP, where they were able to meet in person and discuss Golding’s plans for its multi-million pound regeneration scheme and how it will improve the lives of local residents.
The Cambridge Crescent and Northumberland Court area of Shepway in Maidstone has been earmarked for significant investment and regeneration, where 114 existing homes and shops will be replaced by 236 new, energy-efficient affordable homes with a thriving, modern shopping area, improved landscaping and community facilities.
Last month, Golding Homes submitted its planning application to Maidstone Borough Council detailing its plans, with the submission due to go to the council’s Planning Committee in May.
Speaking about the visit, Chief Executive of Golding Homes, Steph Goad, said: “The scope of the Shepway regeneration means it will truly transform this part of Maidstone, providing modern, sustainable homes that are fit-for-purpose, as well as welcoming green spaces and an improved shopping area to benefit the whole community.
“It was a pleasure to meet with Helen and I’m looking forward to working together to improve the lives of our customers and her constituents.”
MP for Faversham and Mid Kent, Helen Whately, said: “It was good to meet with Steph and others at Golding Homes today and talk about the new plans for Shepway. It will make such a difference to many peoples’ lives and provide over a hundred new homes for our area. I look forward to supporting Golding Homes as they make their plans a reality.”
