Uniper will be submitting an outline planning application in March 2021 to enable the redevelopment of the site, which covers a total area of approximately 279 acres (113 hectares). Just over half of the site, 152 acres (62 hectares) is readily developable land.
MedwayOne comprises mainly brownfield land, that was previously part of either the former coal-fired power station or the area of grassland to the north of the site, which was formally the RNAS Kingsnorth airfield. Access to the site would be via the entrance from Eshcol Road.
There are two jetties on the site, the first, Long Reach Jetty, which is a bespoke facility designed to move coal to serve the previous Kingsnorth power station. The Oakham Ness Jetty was built to supply oil to the now demolished Grain A power station. The jetties will not form part of this planning application, however, the MedwayOne masterplan has been specifically designed to maintain access to them – enabling their possible reuse in the future. Any reuse of the jetties would be subject to a separate planning application.
