Regarding Westwood Town Centre, the proposed Modification makes it clear that Policy E04 presents the criteria against which the acceptability of proposed uses in the Town Centre will be assessed. The retention of the wording - "Any development proposals should ensure there is no net loss in overall commercial floorspace" - is unnecessary and is inconsistent with Policy E04 (as proposed to be modified) which supports residential use (i.e a non commercial use) without requiring there to be "no ne

KCC welcomes the inclusion of text that promotes multi-modal access and would request that the Transport Assessment has specific consideration of the PRoW network including an assessment of the impact on the network. The County Council is supportive of the retention of the archaeological clauses within this policy. The County Council notes the paragraph within Policy SP07, which states: "Masterplanning will be informed by and address the following: The capacity of any utility services and infras

Policy SP07 (MM/019) For the reasons set out in the representations on MM/018 Tesco object to the inclusion in Policy SP07 of reference to "Development proposals in the Westwood Area should have regard to the provisions of the Westwood Area SPD once adopted and also the Westwood Relief Strategy".

There is also no timeframe set out for the adoption of the SPD; it is anticipated that the Local Pla

As stated in MM/001, It needs to be clear and hope that the SPD will dictate how the improvements will be. The Westwood area has been blighted by a lack of planning by the planning authority itself. Community had little say on how Westwood has been developed and the area lacks any cohesive community as it stands. It also sits on different settlement areas and the council needs to make clear what Westwood will need to be for the future. Im sure we will look forward to the pending SPD process.

You refer to improvements to Lord of the Manor – nothing will alleviate major congestion until there is another access from say, the prospect to the north of the airport.

Whilst the preparation of the 'Westwood Area SPD' will assist all parties understand the future planning strategy for Westwood Town Centre, it is imperative that the Local Plan provides a timetable for the preparation and adoption of the SPD. The Council's latest 'Local Development Scheme' (produced in March 2019) refers to consultation on the draft Westwood Area SPD taking place in 'Summer 2019' with adoption in 'Summer 2020'. The LDS also anticipated' that the Thanet Local Plan would be adopt
