Major plans for a multi-million pound development on Folkestone seafront go on view this week.

The exhibition is being hosted by Trent Developments Ltd, the company behind proposals for a leisure and residential development on the site of the former Rotunda amusement park.

The exhibition, at the Civic Centre in Castle Hill Avenue, Folkestone, is open between 10.00am and 4.00pm on Friday (4 February) and between 10.00am and 1.00pm on Saturday (5 January). It will include a model and computer visualisations and there will an opportunity for visitors to talk to Toby Atkinson, Trent’s Managing Director.

Proposals include 740 apartments, hotel, restaurant, multiplex cinema, and bowling alley. 

The original scheme also included food superstore, ASDA, but the giant store is now incorporated in the Bride Hall town centre development.

Trent Developments have now completed the environmental impact assessment needed by the council and the planning application is due to be considered by councillors within the next few months.
