This inclusion of this policy is welcomed as it was unclear on the effect of development on the rural area and small settlements. It is important Green wedges are included in this policy as protection should be strengthened and does form a basis for the lack of green infrastructure which to me was missing in the plan. However, I am concerned on how Westwood as been developed from the previous local plan (2006) and many issues have become because of this. Westwood does need more attention in thi

MM001 Development strategy for Thanet The Westgate-on-sea Town Council (called Town Council in this document) agrees that the national and international wildlife designations and the flood risk areas in Thanet are reasonable and necessary constraints to the allocation of housing on the Isle of Thanet; housing should not be built on flood risk areas or on wildlife designations. The Town Council also agrees that the rural hinterland beyond the urban area of Thanet is predominantly grade 1 and rec

MM/001 In the development strategy for Thanet acknowledgement is made that there is Best and Most Versatile Agricultural land predominately Grade 1 agricultural land with lower grade land only existing in small isolated pockets. This being the case I do not understand why the local plan is permitting the fields around Westgate and Garlinge which contains such high grade fields being given over to build 2000 houses.

MM001 is supported. The Westwood Extension Site (allocation SP17 within the New Local Plan) provides potential opportunities to be re-planned to provide additional new homes, above that which are currently approved and which can be increased under both the existing planning permission and the proposed wording of SP17. Any reconfiguration of the phases that are still to be developed that results in additional units will comprise slightly higher density development. This is appropriate in this lo

Ref: Housing allocations in Cliffsend. Do not understand why not considered with Acol, Sarre and Manston on range of facilities. We do not have any, so why do we have large allocation.

However, we are disappointed that the representations made by Minster about the over development of rural communities have had no impact on the Draft Thanet Local Plan.(MM/001)

Comments submitted concerning the Sustainability Assessment conducted by Arup were consistent in their criticism of the lack of overall impact assessment and the piecemeal nature of the document. Several blatant errors and inconsistencies were reported. Furthermore, it was common across comments to note that much of the Assessment lacked evidence based analysis using generalised, often inappropriate, subjective comment instead which tended to favour development rather than objectivity. For inst
