These links should provide realistic travel alternatives to short distance car journeys, offering direct and convenient access. Increasing active travel participation would help to reduce vehicle congestion on roads, address issues of air quality and improve public health and well-being. The PR

The policy wording should include for an additional requirement for the Masterplan as follows: "Proposals will be judged and permitted only in accordance with a masterplan for the whole site which should include: - A scheme for protecting the development from aircraft noise This would be consistent with the terms established by the outline planning permission for 785 dwellings granted on the site (namely Condition 35 of OL/TH/14/0050).

The County Council supports the requirement that any masterplan for Manston Green must take into account "a pre-design archaeological assessment taking into account the presence of any significant and sensitive remains", as well as "the preservation of listed buildings at Ozengell".

In addition, where the required masterplan will be providing details of "linkages to new and existing public transport infrastructure, including bus and rail services," it is considered that density
