Plans & Documents

Princes Parade is a seven hectare area of land owned by Shepway District Council. The site was formerly used for landfill and is now overgrown with scrub. It has been identified as the preferred location for exciting new proposals with sports and leisure facilities that have been eagerly anticipated for many years. Plans being prepared will include a new swimming pool and leisure complex, and around 150 quality homes to meet local housing needs. Also proposed are extensive and high quality green spaces alongside the Royal Military Canal for the enjoyment of the district as a whole.
