The £90 million development on 7.6 acres of land near Dartford railway station, which was once the home of a supplier of remedies for explorers and the Royal Family, will now be two and three bedroom flats.

The area, formerly called Mill Ponds, will have a high street with 29,000sq ft of retail space, a large village pond, and green spaces with leafy streets. Last week Rightmove announced Dartford homes were the fastest-selling in the whole of Britain.

In January people were camping outside Bellway Homes’ development in Priory Mill, Lawson Road, to get their hands on a hard-to-come-by new property. Bob Weston, chief executive of Weston Group said: “We are delighted to launch Langley Square.

“It will transform disused brownfield land into high quality residential housing and commercial space, creating an attractive and enjoyable place to live. Langley Square is ideal for those looking to own a new home in a country village setting and benefits from excellent connections and outstanding lifestyle facilities on the doorstep.”People can buy off plan at the on-site marketing suite from Saturday. Prices start from £204,995.

In October, there will be show homes available.
