I support this policy - for a flexible approach to identifying new and existing employments sites in the urban area as stated elsewhere , We welcome the last paragraph that implies that rural employment facilities , including open uses, and necessary ancillary infrastructure in the countryside and green wedges will be permitted as part of existing rural businesses and facilities for new employment and creative opportunities will be supported , where it can be shown not to conflict with SP21 and

MM 007 It is important that Ramsgate is considered more fully with regards to economic growth.

The Town Council is very concerned with the reasoning why housing has been allocated in such an unbalanced way towards the north of the island, considering the large sum of money that was spent improving the road system on the south side and the new improved

Economic Growth: "Development is supported that enhances the rural economy subject to protecting the character, quality and function of Thanet's rural settlements and natural environments" The housing development proposals do not protect the character, quality nor function of Thanet's rural settlements. Grade 1/2 farm land is proposed for development which will completely alter the character and function of Thanet both socially and environmentally. For example, 2000 new residences in Westgate wi
