Arlington site fails the Sequential Test

The Sequential Test is an integral part of Planning Policy. The intention is to promote town centre vitality and viability by focussing developments in town centres. Whether an 82,000 square foot superstore will do that, is another question- Freshwater’s own stats say there will be a 30% loss in trade to existing businesses- but going back to the Sequantial Test, site “1” was proven by the applicant and accepted by the Planning Officers to be the nearest to the town center retail (in red)

Isn’t the derelict site “2” nearer?
