Maidstone Rugby Development


In conjunction with our partners, Quinn Estates, the club is in the process of exploring an exciting development opportunity that would see the club move from its current home at The Mote.

The development is part of the Binbury Park Garden Village scheme located on the A249 close to the Kent County Showground which is planned to include a range of highway infrastructure benefits, employment, housing, education and sporting & community gains, of which Maidstone Rugby is part.

The development would see the cub relocate to a site of c15 acres (6 Ha) on a long (125yr) renewable leasewhich would contain the following facilities:
  • a. 2 full sized grass pitches.
  • b. 1 full sized 3G AGP pitch (to World Rugby Regulation 22 standard)
  • c. Mini-Rugby pitches and Training Areas.
  • d. Clubhouse (4,000 sq ft) with viewing balcony.
  • e. Car parking for 150 cars & coaches.
  •  
Note:  These facilities can potentially be enhanced by levering additional grant funding opportunities.

NB: This graphic is purely a representation of a possible layout of the site.

The provision of the site is one of the early delivery aspects of the overall project, which is expected to be within 3yrs of planning permission being granted.  Planning permission for the project has already been submitted to Maidstone Borough Council which could potentially be completed before the end of 2019.

Overall the project provides modern facilities for the club to allow it to grow in addition to creating revenue generating opportunities outside of rugby.

If you wish to register your support for the proposal and the delivery of legacy facilities that benefit the club, you can do so by writing to Maidstone Borough Council. The club has prepared three draft letters that you can download and send direct to the council, or drop off at the club. This is not just limited to club members, as friends and families living within the area can send a letter of support as well.
You can download one or more of the templates below. Please be sure to list your full name and home address on the letter before sending to the council, or handing into the club.

The deadline for the letters to reach the council is January 11th.

(please note: there is no obligation to do so, but your support as a member of the club would be appreciated, as the more letters of support we have, brings more chance of the success of the development).

If you would like to know more about the entire development site and what it entails, you can find the detailed presentation to download here.
