Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Hawkinge, Kent

Developer Edinburgh Land Estates' is planning to build a supermarket and 82 parking spaces on Heron Forstal Avenue.

A decision on the plans was postponed because some residents had not received a letter from Shepway District Council  notifying them of the date of the committee meeting.

Plans refused

Concerns were raised over the provision of parking including the number of spaces not being enough for the events held at the community centre and poor access for delivery vehicles and the weight of traffic along the residential Heron Forstal Avenue. Councillors also questioned the whether the site was right for a supermarket saying the area should remain for community use and a residential area.
