  • Redevelopment of Cramptons Road 

    Gasholder site


    Following the dismantlement of the gas holders at Cramptons Road, plans are being made for the redevelopment of the site.


    In 2018, the local gas distribution company SGN set up SGN Place to bring land no longer required for gas distribution back into use for the community by clearing and remediating where required.


    Cramptons Road Gasholder site represents an important opportunity to deliver much needed housing in an area where new homes cannot be built on Greenbelt land.


    This site is one of the few major development sites identified in the Sevenoaks area as appropriate for the delivery of housing. The gasholders themselves were an important industrial landmark that stood for nearly 100 years as a prominent local landmark.


    This development seeks to celebrate the site’s industrial past while making a sustainable and viable contribution to the area’s housing targets.
