"You may care to know that on driving past Star Lane this weekend I notice that next to the proposed new development which would appear on the L/H side, on the R/H side (corner of Nash Road & Star Lane) the site there (former factory) has been acquired by Abbey New Homes.

Ed: By the way, Figures released in Nationwide Building Society’s House Price Survey for Outer South East England, show house prices up 5.2% for the year, the fastest rate of growth in the region since the first quarter of 2005. Growing infrastructure such as road and rail links and the promise of the high-speed rail link between Ebsfleet and Stratford continue to benefit the region, with house prices in Thanet in particular up a remarkable 15% this year, well above the rest of the region or the national average of 6.9%.
