Evidence, on which Tunbridge Wells Borough Council intends to rely upon in support of the (Calverley Square) CPO application, was released yesterday, Tuesday 29th January. It can be viewed here: http://calverley.persona-pi.com/

The Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, who recently was guest of honour at a Tunbridge Wells Conservative Association dinner, received an overwhelming number of objections to the CPO which shows the strength of feeling amongst Borough residents. As a result he has appointed an Inspector to hold a public inquiry into the proposed Compulsory Purchase Order. If granted, it will see Tunbridge Wells Borough Council spend in excess of £90m on new council offices and a new theatre.

Anyone can attend the Public Inquiry which is being held at The Mercure Hotel, 8 Tonbridge Road, Pembury, TN2 4QL starting on Tuesday, 12th February. On most days, the Inquiry will sit from 10.00am to around 5.00pm, with a break for lunch and a short comfort break in the mid-morning and mid-afternoon. It is currently estimated to sit for 10 days. (12-15, 19-22 and 26-27 February 2019)

Please feel free to attend.
