The new Hawkinge Partnership building next to the Tesco Metro store in Canterbury Road was described as being "absolutely awful" at the Parish Council meeting last night (9 February).

A parishioner who asked a question about the prefabricated building at the start of the meeting was very unhappy about the style and size of the building which could be there for the next seven years. They were unaware of the impact the building would have on the look of the row of shops in Canterbury Road.

The building described as a portakabin is "absolutely awful" agreed Parish Councillors John Punnett.

He continued: "I am surprised at the size of the building and I feel very sorry for the people who live next door".
