Draft orders for the A21 schemes have not yet been published, so no properties are currently subject to compulsory purchase. However, the owner of the Weald Smokery served a Statutory Blight Notice on the Secretary of State and this was accepted. The property has therefore been acquired under the blight provisions contained in section 154(2) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. This property is now being managed by the Highways Agency's property agents. To enable the existing business to continue to trade throughout the marketing period for a new lease, a short term lease has been provided to the Weald Smokery's former business manager.
