Plans for over 100 new homes in Dartford have been submitted to the council after developers were shot down in May.

Developer Crest Nicholson has submitted plans for 151 homes, spread across 16 one-bed apartments, 115 two-bed apartments, in a 16-storey high rise as well as six three-bed houses and 14 four-bed houses.

Plans were originally rejected by councillors back in May because the of three main reasons.

Firstly, scheme did not have a 'continuous riverside path' next to the Thames, secondly because plans 'undermined the design quality of the park' and thirdly because of concerns over increased parking pressures.

More than 450 residents signed a petition against the plans in May claiming the development would bring overcrowding to an already stretched infrastructure in Greenhithe.

According to developers, the Fasttrack bus service will be operational by the end of 2017 and this should ease parking problems..

A spokesman for Crest Nicholson said: "We were naturally disappointed by the vote to refuse our initial application in May against the advice from officers at Dartford Council and all statutory consultees. The project team has listened to members’ concerns and has amended our plans to address these.

“We hope that the new plans will result in a positive decision, so that the significant benefits of this final phase of Ingress Park, including new homes and restaurant/café, can be delivered for the local area.”

Residents contended earlier this year that parking at the Pier is already stretched.

One representation made to the council said: "The existing infrastructure is already struggling to cope with traffic volumes and inadequate parking on the estate. The added volume will worsen the situation already at breaking point.

In the revised application, developers have included plans for a continuous riverside walkway, for bigger gaps between terraced houses and for additional off site parking.

Crest Nicholson said an additional eight off site spaces, six car and two van, located near the community centre.

Plans for a boat trailer park, a training centre and shops, are also included in the application.

The application reads: "The Pier’ proposals have been revised to address the three Reasons for Refusal. These proposals are considered to be wholly in compliance with the Development Plan, allowing Crest Nicholson to discharge their outstanding planning obligations, and ensuring their vision for Ingress Park is fulfilled for the benefit of the wider community."
