Ahead of speaking at the Kent Development Plans Conference on the 29th January 2018 there has been some great news for the Kent Medical Campus project.

The project is set to receive a £4m boost after a successful bid made to the Government’s National Productivity Investment Fund. The application, which was submitted by both the Kent County Council and Maidstone Borough Council along with a significant contribution financially from Kent Medical Campus was then accepted.

The money will primarily fund infrastructure improvements, including upgrades to two roundabouts close to Junction 7 at Bearsted Road and New Cut Road. And the scheme is set to create new jobs and support residential development with the region wanting to both keep and entice skilled workers to the area.

Gary Watson, who’ll be speaking at our event, said: ”The Campus is already attracting significant interest from companies and institutions eager to find a viable and attractive alternative to what’s on offer in London and elsewhere in the South East. Our ability to offer a two-year turnaround from a company signing the deal to opening the door, thanks to our outline planning permission and support of Maidstone Borough Council, is very attractive. The road improvements will further increase the potential to create an academic, health and science-focused campus in Kent.”
