Client: Pavilions Property Trustees
Local Planning Authority: Thanet District Council
Project Summary: Contour were appointed by the owner of the Broadstairs Retail in Westwood to protect their position following attempts by the County and District Councils to allocate a strip of land running through the centre of the park for a new link road. Contour submitted Local Plan representations objecting to the allocation, leading to an appearance at the Local Plan Examination. Faced with Contour’s evidence, the Inspector agreed that inclusion of the safeguarded link road made the Local Plan was unsound, and the Council removed the allocation. Subsequently, Contour has been advising the site owner on potential development opportunities to improve the offer within the retail park.
