A new employment model for Thanet

Hume Planning Consultancy has achieved planning permission (full details for Phase 1; outline permission for Phase 2) for an exciting new employment site in Thanet.

Drawing inspiration from London’s ‘Box Parks’, the scheme will introduce 132 recycled container ship units for start-up businesses across East Kent. This unique employment site will bring a new energy to Thanet, and seek to provide a ‘springboard’ to fledgling businesses in the District, as well as those looking to re-think their own working practices post-Covid.

Hume Planning Consultancy looks forward to seeking the site come forward in 2021.
