Margate Arlington Tesco In Your Face
The Feared Plan for Arlington House Tesco
I understand the hurt architects Nabb and Causer felt about sacrificing the integrity of a building they admire, which motivated them to produce their impression opposite. And at the Inquiry just two townsfolk turned up supporting redesign for shopping. Being unconcerned to hear the Arlington residents position they then left. Over on Simon Moores' blog someone has at last asked the question I was most interested in:
Simon, A couple of minor points that have always concerned me. First where can I find any record of TDC negotiations for the premium that the Lessees will pay the Council for the uplift in site value if they build, and where did the imagined tesco picture originate?
Another Feared Plan - with a Bonnet on Top
i.e - what is the premium to be paid by developers to the community to compensate for changing the character and appearance of a Neighbourhood? Also, is it wise for all proceeds to go into a TDC Bank Account, especially if a Neighbourhood Plan has been adopted? And if owners of development land are Authorities (eg. EKO), and there is no Neighbourhood Plan to force a negotiation, then surely the prospect of a meaningful planning gain is remote?
