Date For Tunbridge Wells' Calverley Square Public Inquiry Announced
The public inquiry to consider Tunbridge Wells Borough Council’s compulsory purchase of land and acquisition of rights over land for its Calverley Square development will begin on Tuesday 12th February.
It will be held at the Mercure Tunbridge Wells Hotel, Pembury (TN2 4QL) and will be conducted by an independent inspector appointed by the Planning Inspectorate.
The Council has been negotiating to acquire land and new rights over certain land as part of its plans to develop a new office building and theatre and has issued Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPOs). The public inquiry will consider objections to these CPOs and hear evidence from both the Council and objectors. Visit the dedicated website, calverley.persona-pi.com/
When the vote took place back in December 2017 on the Borough Council’s proposals for the multi-million new development to include a new theatre, civic centre, office space to let, underground car park for 260 cars, as well as a public square at the entrance to Calverley Grounds, the outcome went in favour of the scheme by 30 votes to 13.
