"Appropriate landscape treatment in order to provide an appropriate transition between the development and the adjacent open countryside" - what does this mean, "appropriate" used twice in a sentence? I own the adjacent open countryside and it is farmed, it is not an asset for the developers. Similarly, the retention and/or upgrading of designated bridleways refers to my land; TM 14 is NOT a bridleway it is a footpath. Am I supposed to just give it up to increase the developer's assets? TM13 is

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

Paragraph 3, Point 3 - The revised text now refers to new roundabout junctions on Shottendane Road, Manston Road and Hartsdown Road. However, this should be altered to enable flexibility over the form of the junction on Hartsdown Road. The County Council therefore recommends that this policy is altered to require new roundabout junctions on Shottendane Road, Manston Road and an 'appropriate form of junction at Hartsdown Road'. The Transport Assessment should encourage a modal transport shift to

Traffic Modelling in respect to the outcome of the DCO should be made, as I have concerns on Manstons roads capacity as it is linked to spitfire junction which will be radically redesigned. Coffin house corner is known as a pinch point for traffic and can be heavily hit especially during tourist season (especially if shottendane road is used as a main connection to margate). I don't see much evidence on the capacity of this road in respect to an operating airport and the inner road circuit.

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

Gladman note that the policy replaces former Policy HO2 and essentially 'upgrades' the allocation at land north and south of Shottendane Road to a strategic housing allocation. Gladman support this change in policy, but has the following comments about the MM as it has been drafted. 2.6.2 In the first instance, Gladman notes that the policy divides the residential elements so that up to 300 units can be provided on the northern field parcel and up to 250 units on the southern parcel. To ensure
