'Progress at last' says MP

Helen Grant delighted as Cranbrook Town Centre regeneration is set to proceed


Cranbrook, Kent 12-11-15: Last night the Tunbridge Wells Borough Council planning committee conditionally approved an application to demolish buildings on the Cranbrook Engineering site. This has opened the way for town centre regeneration and the building of a new community centre.

Helen Grant MP has long been campaigning for this outcome alongside the Cranbrook and Sissinghurst Parish Council Kent County Councillor Sean Holden. She attended the Town Hall in support.

After hearing the decision Helen said "Progress at last. I am delighted with this decision. Tunbridge Wells Borough Council have listened to the people of Cranbrook and now work can commence on regeneration. I am so happy for the Cranbrook community."
