2:53pm Monday 19th November 2012 in News By George Sargent.
EXPANSIVE plans have been submitted to Dartford Council for the construction of up to 40 homes on the old Empire Sports Ground on Knockhall Road in Greenhithe.
Planning promotion company, Landhold Capital, which owns the land, said it will build a children’s play area and move the Empire Bowls Club to improved facilities on the site.
The bowling green will remain where it is and 43 parking spaces are proposed for the bowls club’s members.
The plans include affordable housing, visitor parking and minimum of two parking spaces for each house.
A public exhibition of the plans was held for residents in May 2012.
Landhold Capital director, Robert Taylor, said: “The development will allow the opportunity to bring to public use an area of open space and will secure the long term future of Empire Bowls Club.
