The new paragraphs are welcomed as this will allow for a review of the Local Plan to incorporate the decision made by the Secretary of State on the Manston Airport DCO

MM004 Main modifications The Town Council completely disagrees with this approach. The Local Plan must be correct from the start and therefore if TDC needs an extra 6 months or longer to get it correct, then we would respectfully ask that it is granted this time. If this local plan is just signed off simply because we can "Get it done" and "we are fed up with it dragging on", then we risk unnecessary developments being agreed without proper policies attached. As an example of this is Thanet E

MM05 inserts new Policy SP01b that requires the Council to undertake a review of the Local Plan within six months of its adoption. Gladman support the inclusion of a review policy, but consider that new paragraph (MM04) would benefit from added detail as to the matters that would be considered as part of a review. For example, the first bullet point notes that the review would consider the implications of climate change, but does not detail which elements of the Plan would be subject to review n

The Broadstairs Society understands the reason for the modification although it is symptomatic of the way the whole process has been undertaken that it is necessary for a review of the Local Plan within six months of it being published. A lot of work has been expended on planning and little, if anything on actual implementation.

A further issue for review should be an overall impact assessment of the proposed developments. The current piecemal presentation masks major and serious implications for the existing communities in Thanet. Potentially 10% of best agricultural land could be lost, there is no overall assessment of traffic, public transport, health, education and social care needs. Law and order and the social impacts of such a large and rapid population change need to be meaningfully considered.

Support: Following on from the East Kent Local Plan Climate Change and Adaption Workshop that Dover District Council organised on the 28 November 2019, Dover District Council would very much welcome the opportunity for Local Planning Authorities from across the whole of Kent to work together in order to identify ways that the implications for climate change can be addressed in a holistic Kent wide manner.

Local Housing Need: The National Planning Framework is at fault in assigning high numbers of housing to a seaside tourist area with seasonal jobs, poor road network, high percentage of retirees, care homes and many residents with support needs. The policy should be opposed by Thanet Council and MP's. The Plan should target the need to renovate and return to market the existing empty properties. Hectares of new 2, 3 and 4 bed housing will not meet the needs of the local population. The Plan state
