A plan to regenerate Gravesend in Kent, UK, has been rejected following a public vote.

The £120m ($188m) project would have involved 400 flats, shops, a hotel and 1,000 parking spaces in the town’s Heritage Quarter.

The scheme’s developer, Edinburgh House, spent £4m ($6.2m) and took three years to prepare the application which was submitted to Gravesham Borough Council.

Huge public opposition and lack of open spaces were some of the reasons behind the decision.
