I farm the land around this site, and I grow potatoes every few years on this actual land. It is some of the very best land in the country for growing crops. It seems to me that the negative externalities are very large, for me and for those living nearby. The stock of capital assets will not be raised in line with this very large development, resulting in more crowding of our hospitals, roads, schools etc. Indeed I am supposed to provide land to improve the roads around this development, at agr

The County Council strongly recommends the wording for the proposed requirement 1) "an archaeological evaluation" is amended to a pre-design archaeological assessment and evaluation and provision, if necessary, for the preservation of significant archaeological remains. The County Council welcomes requirement 2 concerning the Scheduled Monuments and Dent de Lion gateway.

See attached file For the reasons set out in our duly made representations to the Submission Local Plan we continue to have concerns over the Local Plan's reliance on a handful of strategic sites to deliver a substantial proportion of the district's housing needs over the plan period. Following the deletion of a mixed use development at Manston Airport from the Proposed Revisions to the Local Plan these large sites were proposed to accommodate additional housing development to make up the shor

-MM/035 Please refer to MM/001 The fields to the east and west of Minster Road and along the Shottendane Road in Garlinge are Grade 1 agricultural land which should be used for food not building houses. The roads in that area are already under immense pressure from traffic jams and parking. Minster Road is not an appropriate road for even higher volumes of traffic it is hardly wide enough to take 2 cars in stretches.

Response by policy shown in "italics" and my comments in "bold" shown below: "Policy SP15 - Strategic Housing Site - Westgate-on-Sea Land to the east and west of Minster Road, Westgate is allocated for up to 2,000 new dwellings with an approximate average amaximum density of 35 dwellings per hectare(net) at land to the east and west of Minster Road, Westgate-on-Sea." This part of policy understands that mixed development may incur a mixture of housing and I can accept this. I do contend with

GP surgeries and dentists, schools and the local hospital are already struggling to cope with the current population level. With proposals to close the Stroke Unit and Accident and Emergency units are Margate hospital it seems ludicrous to develop apparently every available field. My husband has a heart condition that leaves him at a higher risk of stroke so this greatly concerns me. I have no faith the necessary new surgeries and schools will be built in the time frame required and Westgate and

Concern at the reduction of provision of open space. This applies across the majority of housing provisions when we are being urged to increase – down by 8.42ha

MM/033, MM/034, MM/035, MM/036, MM/040 – while we welcome the additional and more specific references to heritage (archaeology and listed buildings) we maintain our view, as previously stated, that a heritage impact assessment is required prior to allocation of the sites in view of the likely harmful impacts that will result from development of these sites. Allocation of these without prior assessment is liable to leave the heritage assets vulnerable to detrimental change to the character and se

On behalf of Millwood Designer Homes Limited, please find below comments on the Proposed Main Modifications (MM) to the Local Plan. Our comments relate to land at Westgate, which is proposed for 2000 homes under strategic policy SP15, in which Millwood have a Land Interest. Other Main Modifications are supported, specifically MM27(the stepped trajectory), MM42 (policy SP19 - the mix of dwellings), and MM44 (policy SP20 – affordable housing). These representations therefore relate solely to MM/0

From 1 April 2018, a new set of rules covering the charging for new connections and requisitions for companies wholly or mainly in England come into force. These new rules include requirements for water and sewerage companies to provide upfront charges for most connections services and make the charges for offsite reinforcement works more transparent and cost reflective, rather than requiring the developer to connect to the point of nearest adequate capacity. Network reinforcement, required as a
