Policy SP03 (MM/009) The Main Modifications do not clarify what approach should be taken to Thanet Reach Business Park.

It is recommended that this policy refers to charging points being active and providing a minimum of 7kw capacity per charging point. This would put the policy in line with recent central government guidance in relation to electric charging infrastructure (Paragraph 8 - Electric Vehicle Charging in Residential and Non-Residential Buildings July 2019)

There is a possible issue of car parking at these sites, as can be seen at Manston Business park on some days. Some assessment for parking facilities should be made, but also good connections reinforced by public transport and cycling. The assessment for parking may be different as different vehicle types may be required by employees and businesses, which could be different to the standard formula for parking spaces.

East Northdown Farm, Garden and Business Centre should be identified and recognised as an existing mixed use site capable of making a greater contribution to the employment , facilities needs of the community , with 3.8ha in the urban area and 60 ha in the green wedge. in accordance with these policies . Such use should be supported not fought against - which continues to stifle our planned investment and improvement in facilities.

A transport assessment and travel plan should be in place before any development takes place. For business with movement of vehicles more than one charging point for every 10 spaces should be considered.
