It’s worth considering, well at least giving some thought to, we believe.
Aldi’s in the centre of Hythe is up for sale. Aldi’s purchased the land for £1.5 million in June 2000 according to the Land Registry. We understand they are looking for approximately £2 million for the site, according to those overseeing the sale. Following Aldi’s relocation to new premises nearby, the property will be available with vacant possession from mid 2019.
Aldi’s, do not own the car park, Folkestone & Hythe District Council do and it is one of their best money spinners in the district.
The site we believe would be big enough to accommodate a leisure centre in a central location, making it accessible by those in Hythe and beyond. It would be good for the High St and save the Council a lot of headaches about stopping up roads, surface water and other issues.
The question is how would the residents of Hythe and The Save Princes Parade campaign group feel about putting a leisure centre in the centre of Hythe?
And would Folkestone & Hythe District Council even consider purchasing the site for such a project?
