It is now known that to make Princes Parade “viable” according to Folkestone & Hythe District Council, the 150 residential properties are not necessary.
F&HDC officers now know that Princes Parade would be “viable” with just the leisure centre, the retail and the hotel.
However, we understand that F&HDC wish to include the 150 homes, so that they can make money for the Council’s coffers. We would suggest, if it becomes necessary to build the Leisure Centre on Princes Parade, that the land for the houses be given over to parkland similar to the Lower Leas Coastal Park.
From sources within the Council itself, and Cllr Malcom Dearden at Full Council tonight (28/11/2018), we now understand that the Princes Parade Business Plan will come before the Cabinet in January 2019 and the outline planning application in Feb 2019.
