Urban Gravesham has described the decision to pass the first phase of the controversial Heritage Quarter development as “unlawful” and has written to the council urging it to reconsider its decision.
The community group believes councillors on the regulatory board were “misled” by Gravesham Council leader John Burden and solicitor Martin Goodman that there was no were no reasonable ground to refuse the plans.
The plans for the Eastern Quarter of the £120million development were narrowly passed on April 30 but the solicitors for Ubran Gravesham, DMH Stallard, has written to Gravesham asking it to bring the decision back before the board.
A spokesman for the group said: “We had always believed the decision was seriously flawed and that the advice given at committee was wrong.”
Both Gravesham Council and Edinburgh House declined to comment at this stage.
