MM 005 Local Plan Review It is true that we need a cut-off date for the full completion of a document. However, we cannot use this as an excuse for an incomplete document that is not up to date and is not sound. The local plan is not sound as the OAHN is based on inaccurate assumptions and it also does not place enough weight on the fact that the UK will experience likely water shortages, flooding and food shortages very soon. The NPPF should not be applied in a way that allows overarching cli

Generally speaking any local plan review policy should be easy to understand and effective and, should aim to set achievable targets for the completion of the review, with any triggers written into policy being meaningful and having sufficient 'teeth'. With this in mind, whilst MM05 seeks to align the local plan review to an updated Local Development Scheme, for clarity and effectiveness, the policy would benefit from a final sentence that confirms when the Local Plan review will be submitted fo

We note the commitment to a review of the Local Plan within 6 months of its adoption. We look forward to early engagement with the Council to map out, in conjunction with Kent Highways, those elements relating to highways and transport and the timetable for any evidence/.policy production and review. The review, in part under the Duty to Co-operate, will need to take into account the emerging Canterbury, Dover and Swale Local Plan reviews.

This policy should be extended to commit to genuine community involvement and consultation which goes way beyond posting large volumes of printed material on line, largely out of sight of the people of Thanet. Officers and elected representative should be confident in their judgements and be able to demonstrate publicly that the strategy and associated developments are realistic, evidence based, beneficial, deliverable and in the interests of the people of Thanet.

I agree with the necessity for an early review of the Plan in order to address these important issues.
