Morrisons supermarket still on the cards for old pub site in East Milton Road, Gravesend

02 April 2014
by Thom Morris

A Morrisons superstore, four houses and six flats are likely to be built on the site of the old Prince of Wales in East Milton Road, Gravesend.

The proposals, submitted to Gravesham council by Moat Homes, will go before planners next Wednesday. An earlier decision was deferred for a site visit.

During the visit, councillors raised concerns about road safety, conflict with the school run and the need for bollards to protect the listed church wall –which would be repaired as part of development.

KCC Highways has suggested increasing the length of double yellow lines along the road.

The pub shut in 2006. It was then damaged by fire.

English Heritage has voiced concerns as it is next to the Grade II* listed St Peter and St Paul’s Church.

Six objection letters and one petition containing 36 signatures also opposing the scheme were received.
