Policy SP05 (MM/012) Given the major bearing the future of Manston Airport will have on the development needs and planning policies of the district the need for an early review of the Local Plan is supported. Indeed, it is contended that it can only be found sound subject to such an early review. It is therefore imperative that this comprises not only a full (rather than partial) review but also a commitment to an early update of all policies of the Plan. It is therefore submitted that the tim

The wording for new Policy SP05 was discussed and agreed by TDC and RSP as part of the Local Plan Examination. The new wording for this policy reflects what was agreed and this is welcomed. Any decision on the Manston Airport DCO and the effect that this will have on Local Plan policies must be determined through the early review of the Plan

New Policy SP05 The drafting is not right as a DCO is not"confirmed" it is "granted" or "refused". The drafting is not correct and does not marry with the wording of paragraphs 1.38-1.45 nor with the Council's own evidence base. Accordingly the wording of the New Policy SP05 (without prejudice) be amended for example as follows- "Manston Airport as identified on the Policy Map is safeguarded for airport related uses and permission will not be granted for development until the early review of

Some consideration needs to be made if further delays are made to the DCO decision and that a 6 month review may not be appropriate. The DCO outcome is now due 18th May 2020

We note and welcome the commitment to reviewing the Local Plan in light of the DCO decision on the future of Manston Airport. Highways England would wish to participate in the transport related elements of the review.

Support: Dover District Council continues to very much welcome and offer our full support to RiverOak Strategic Partners (RSP) plans to re-open Manston as a fully operational airport as this would greatly assist with the regeneration of the East Kent economy and the UK aviation economy by making better use of regional airport capacity and the ability to create new markets post Brexit. We further consider that the geographical location of Manston airport to the Port of Dover provides a unique opp

It would appear that this policy is in direct opposition to the stated Avia Solutions study which confirms an airport at this site is not viable. At what time did this 'about turn' occur?

An early review of the Plan, in light of the DCO decision, will certainly be necessary. Whichever way the DCO decision goes, it will have a major affect on the provision of infrastructure, employment and confidence going forward. Instead of the cloud of uncertainty and division of the last few years, Thanet really needs to move on from this paralysing issue in order to provide the reassurance of an economically viable blueprint for the future. I welcome this modification.
