The planning inquiry into controversial plans to build a Tesco superstore near Margate’s seafront has been postponed.

This looks like a major victory for the Friends of Arlington Margate group who had raised concerns about the legality of the status of the environmental impact analysis statement.

The Friends say: “We will carry on fighting for a sustainable and positive development at Arlington. One that complements our seaside town heritage and not one that crushes it. It is likely to be at least a month, if not more, before anything happens.”
