Bapchild Update May 2015

More housing for Bapchild

Swale Borough Council set to increase housing numbers and Bapchild is likely to have multiple developments occurring simultaneously. 

The push by Government to build more houses could see Bapchild triple in size as the Council loses control over where and when housing is developed.

The latest proposal comes from developers CRABTREE & CRABTREE (BAPCHILD) LIMITED application number 15/506945/OUT.
