Survey shows huge support for Sainsbury’s

Sainsbury’s plans for a £40 million out-of-town shopping complex at Herne Bay have received the thumbs up from residents.

According to figures released today (31st October) by developers,
84 per cent of locals support the scheme at the Altira Business Park.
This follows a display of the plans at the Premier Inn’s TableTable
restaurant earlier this month which attracted nearly 600 visitors.

Nigel Wakefield, development director at developers Terrace Hill,
said: “We are obviously delighted with the response. We would like to
thank the people of Herne Bay for the interest they have shown in our
plans.

“We are now working through the comments before submitting a
planning application to the city council. We are fully committed to
delivering our plans, which represent a real opportunity for increased
supermarket shopping choice and local job creation.This could act as a catalyst for further investment in Altira Park and Herne Bay town centre.”

The scheme at Beltinge includes business starter units and a
footbridge across the Ramsgate to London railway line at Blacksole
Bridge.

By Friday, October 19, 682 comment forms had been completed. 11
per cent objected to the idea. The remaining five per cent were
undecided.
