Green light for £55m Chapel Down Brewery development

Green light for £55m Chapel Down Brewery development

A £55m scheme for a brewery and visitor centre plus 216 homes and a new supermarket on a brownfield site has been given planning permission.

Ashford Borough Council awarded planning permission for the £55m mixed use development near the town centre.

Property regeneration company U+I had acquired the six acre Victoria Way site located opposite Ashford International train station from the Homes and Communities Agency.

Chapel Down will open a brewery to expand sales of its Curious Brew brand together along with a visitor centre including a shop, restaurant and bar at the development. Brewery tours will add a new dimension to the town’s leisure scene. An application by U+I for a 125-bedroom hotel on the same site will be considered by Ashford’s planning committee at its November meeting.

Designed to attract millenials, potentially appealing to those working in London and commuting via the nearby Ashford International train station, the developers say the project will provide £50m worth of economic growth to Ashford over the next 10 years, with £3.8m additional revenue spent by residents in the town each year.
