Shepway North Ward

Shepway North Ward encompasses the communities to the North and West of the Shepway development, bordered on its north side by Mote Park.  The development of this community was started in the 1930s in the west and north of the ward moving eastward with the later part of the community being developed post world war two.

The award-winning Mote Park is in the north of the ward providing nature and leisure for the whole of Maidstone as well as outstanding views of the North Downs.
