New Marks and Spencers moving ahead

Construction on the site on Eclipse Park, off the Bearsted Road, is moving ahead rapidly with roofing due to start shortly.

Local Lib Dem County Councillor, Ian Chittenden, commented, "Bearing in mind the problems we often get with building sites, its nice to be able to say ‘well done’ to Marks and Spencers and Contractors Gallaghers. Construction is clearly well managed with areas on site and adjacent to the site kept clean with particular consideration for the public using public roads and other areas."

The proposal was well supported by local residents who tell me they are looking forward to the opening of the store in the summer of 2020.
