About Otterpool Park


Otterpool Park is a proposed garden town in East Kent, situated seven miles from Folkestone and accessible from Junction 11 of the M20 and Westenhanger train station.


In partnership with the local community, Otterpool Park will provide the homes and jobs that will enable future generations to remain in the area in which they were raised, and the necessary facilities and services to support the residents, as well as bringing increased economic benefits to Shepway’s wider communities. Plans for the garden town will include homes, land for employment, shops, schools and medical centres, as well as extensive open spaces and access to the countryside.


Otterpool Park is a long-term project, spanning approximately 30 years. With a collaborative approach and careful masterplanning from the outset, Otterpool Park will bring value, sustainability and a high quality of life to local residents.
