Compulsory purchase is last resort

You will note that back in November 2011 Sainsbury asked Rother to CPO Tesco land and Rother refused. See agenda for 14/4/2014 Rother cabinet meeting item 12

As early as November 2011 Sainsbury’s asked the Council to make a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) of the Tesco land but the Council has endeavoured to avoid this option to date preferring to see it as a last resort.
