Work on a £50m new village and bridge over the River Medway is due to start this month.

Peters Village, near Wouldham in Kent, will be made up of more than 1,000 homes, at least 25% of them "affordable", the developers Trenport said.

The new Medway Valley Crossing, with a separate cycle track and footpath, will link the A228 to the village.

The plans were approved in 2006 but postponed due to the economic downturn.

The village will be built on the site of the former Peters Wouldham Hall Cement Works, which employed 1,000 people and operated 80 barges at its peak.

The project, which received £19.5m from the government, is due to be completed around 2022.
