In acting on behalf of Mountgrange Investments for a substantial proposal on the site of the former headquarters of Kent County Council, Firstplan helped secure planning permission for 17,000 square metres of offices, shopping and community facilities, 192 flats and off site affordable housing provision in locations of identified housing need in Maidstone.

Subsequent discussions were held with Maidstone Borough Council to renegotiate the planning permission and its associated section 106 agreement to reflect changed economic conditions, to ensure that the scheme remained viable.
