A note from Tonbridge Civic Society I thought I'd share as the proposed plans are pretty significant for Tonbridge. Plus here's a link to Tonbridge and Malling BC's information about the project
"This note is to give you details of the Public Exhibition concerning Sainsbury’s and the Council’s plans for the town centre.
The Exhibition will be held in the Council Chamber at Tonbridge Castle:
· from 10am to 8pm on Friday 11 October and
· from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 12 October.
We have been informed that the Exhibition will be set out in two parts, with a common theme of economic regeneration for the town centre.
· Sainsbury’s will be presenting proposals to develop new facilities including new shops and restaurants to complement the existing town centre, a new larger Sainsbury’s supermarket, and a multi-screen cinema.
· The Council will be displaying its plans for a proposed new leisure and community centre on Bradford Street car park.
This public exhibition is intended to provide the opportunity for local residents and businesses to come and see the proposals and to discuss them with representatives of Sainsbury’s, the Borough Council and their advisers.
The Council has indicated that feedback received from the exhibition will be used to refine the plans before planning applications are submitted."
Anyone got any thoughts on this. Shall we just let Sainsbury's do whatever they like with
their our town? Happy to lose Tonbridge's only department store, Beales??..
