A further issue for review should be an overall impact assessment of the proposed developments.

The current piecemal presentation masks major and serious implications for the existing communities in Thanet. Potentially 10% of best agricultural land could be lost, there is no overall assessment of traffic, public transport, health, education and social care needs. Law and order and the social impacts of such a large and rapid population change need to be meaningfully considered.
