The news that Freshwater and Tesco have reached agreement about restoration of the Arlington Estate has been welcomed by Thanet District Council.

The Deputy Leader of Thanet Council, Cllr Roger Latchford said: "When the Council agreed its Development Brief for this key site in central Margate, it was hoped that a comprehensive redevelopment would come forward. It is excellent news for the economy that we now have a proposal."

Cllr. Latchford added: "At the moment, the council does not have detailed plans showing the redevelopment. Much more work on the design needs to be carried out, before a planning application could be made. In the meantime the council will impress on the developers that public consultation must be comprehensive and should start soon. In particular, we want to ensure that Arlington House residents, who are entitled to a say about how the appearance and quality of their homes, are consulted about how their surroundings are to be improved."
