St Modwen is planning a £100m major mixed use redevelopment of Syngenta’s former agro-chemicals plant at Yalding, near Maidstone.

The proposals will include turning the 105-acre site into a commercial and residential development with business space, 350 homes and public spaces.

The proposals also include the refurbishment of Syngenta former Technical Block into refurbished offices.

An application has been submitted and St Modwen plans to start on site early next year if it is granted permission.
