Draft Charter for Otterpool Park

In September 2017 we produced a draft Charter for Otterpool Park that set out in more detail our aspirations for this new garden town. The 24 page document builds on the “Development Principles for Otterpool Park” first published in the Expression of Interest that the council submitted to government in June 2016.


Following public consultation and consideration by the Council’s Cabinet, revisions have been made to the Charter  which is now completed and we have now published it on our website.




We have also posted a link on our website to information about the bid that Shepway District Council and Kent County Council put together for the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund. (HIF). The HIF is an opportunity to forward fund the necessary infrastructure to accelerate investment and diversify the house building market creating a new community at Otterpool Park. The bid is now being assessed by the Department for Communities and Local Government
