Sounds like a star, works like a black hole.

One point three million pounds... vanished.


By the north-east Kent coast, in the fine town of Herne Bay,

nestling between the railway line and the A299,

lies the undersubscribed Altira Business Park.

It has a potential 46,450 m² of commercial space.

The contractual trigger for building a new Blacksole Bridge is having 17,000m² leased. They have leased some plots - Premier Inn, DSA, etc - totalling about 2,500m², but are still short of the required 17,000 m² . Otherwise we would have a new bridge.

Mind you, in their soft focus vision of the future when the business park looks full, there's no sign of a new bridge. An oversight, presumably.
