Since we last reported on payments made by Folkestone & Hythe District Council to their Solicitors’s of choice – Attwells Solicitors LLP – to defend the Judicial Review of Princes Parade, costs have escalated by a further 85%.
They have grown from £34,565 by the end of Jan 2020 to £63,725 at the end of March 2020, according to the Councils payment to supplier data.
Planning consent for the Princes Parade development of 150 houses, a leisure centre and a hotel was was formally granted on 18 July 2019. It had been approved by the planning committee in August 2018 subject to the Environment Agency withdrawing their objection to the surface water being drained into the canal. The EA withdrew their objection in early 2019.
