High Court Judgment

We are disappointed with the today’s judgment at the High Court. This is particularly so when the Judge, Lord Justice Moses was clear that the environmental effects of both Arlington and Dreamland should have been considered as a whole – and our understanding from the Secretary of State and the Public Inquiry was that clearly was not the case.

It is also of concern that the Secretary of State has now stated publicly that there must be an end to out of town/edge of town development being proposed by Tesco.

We will be considering the judgment carefully and then deciding what to do.

In the meantime, a huge thanks to everyone who has supported the campaign. We all know Margate is regenerating. The improvements to the seafront are bearing fruit.  New hotels, restaurants, shops, the new sea defence steps. Dreamland on the horizon and even more planned hotels.
