- MM/002 I question the new development in Westgate will fully meet the infrastructure requirements. Traffic and parking are already huge issues in the area. The addition of the new developments will only worsen the situation. Traffic and parking are huge issues across the whole of Thanet and I am I remain unconvinced the solutions proposed by Kent County Council, Thanet District Council and the Developer will solve this.

MM002 SPO1a Spatial Strategy Housing The Town Council does not agree with the statement that the main towns of Thanet (Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate) form an almost continuous urban area, separated only by green wedges. TDC states that the allocations in the Local Plan have been correctly allocated and do not need to use a settlement hierarchy. We disagree with this. Each town is unique and must be treated as such. We believe that the plan should set out a clear settlement hierarchy for ea

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.

The proposed new Policy SPO1A seeks to identify the focus for development within Thanet during the Plan period. The proposed policy as worded seeks to allow housing development in Sarre, Acol or Manston 'within village confines'. The Plan chooses to retain settlement confines and those proposed are drawn so tightly around parts of Sarre, Acol and Manston that there does not appear to be any land left available 'within village confines' where development could occur, bearing in mind the Nationa

We note the revised Spatial Strategy. To assist applicants and others, we consider either a cross reference to the relevant transport policy or a direct reference should be included to ensure that all are aware that Highways England must be consulted in connection with any proposals that, by virtue of their scale and/or location, may impact on the safety and/or efficient operation of the Strategic Road Network. Such applications could be for housing (for example, it is likely that a SRN TA will

It is untrue to state that '.........the primary focus for new housing development in Thanet is in the urban area.....'.The primary focus for development in Thanet is greenfield sites outside existing settlements. By far the largest proportion of development is on greenfield countryside, much of it prime agricultural land. The fields such as at Westwood, Westgate and Birchington are natural countryside, it is disingenuous to pretend that they are anything other. Whilst proposed developments ma

The Plan states that Thanet's urban areas shall be the focus for new housing. However, the Council have proposed new housing developments on large tracts of farmland which are not urban areas. In the interest of maintaining the touristic appeal and character of these coastal towns, Thanet's Local Plan should state that these characteristic are to be retained and not developed.
