Town & Country Housing is planning a new Showfields Estate and want to do this together with the local community.
We want to improve parts of the Tunbridge Wells estate and the communal areas providing modern, efficient new homes and updated community facilities.
Our aim is to create a safer and more welcoming environment for everyone.
To achieve this, we want to understand the local community’s aspirations for Showfields and make sure the final plan reflects residents’ priorities.
The consultation plan
We want to work with Showfields residents and the wider community to hear your views and develop ideas throughout the consultation process.
Are there things you like or things you want to change? There will be lots of opportunities to comment on the proposals as they develop. Your feedback can influence the final plans.
After we’ve consulted with, and listened to, everyone who wants to have a say, we hope to make a planning application to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council in late 2021.

Community and Social Value
We want to understand from residents what opportunities and activities you would like to be available on the estate. We’ll be talking to Number One Community Trust, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council, Kent County Council and other local groups, as well as residents, to look at ways to improve community facilities and services.
We’ll also be consulting with local groups to try to attract funding for projects on the estate and to create longer term training and employment opportunities.
The Showfields Engagement team will also be at the Number One Community Trust Café every Wednesday 10am – noon.
There will be lots of other activities happening on the estate during the consultation, such as:
- Online workshops
