The Town Council supports the provision of new TDC policies covering water efficiency, internal floor space standards and accessible and adaptable accommodation. The Town Council particularly favours the policy on internal floor space standards as there have been a number of planning applications agreed in recent years in Broadstairs where the accommodation is too small and the development 'squeezed' onto a very small plot, to the detriment of the new residents and neighbouring properties.

CPC support the use of the national standards. It is important that everyone has a house of a good size and garden. Parking is also an issue, and each property should have at least 2 parking spaces.

National Standards for internal space in new development; accessible and adaptable accommodation; and water efficiency – TDC should adopt codes of sustainable building. At the moment, developers are permitted to make a profit from the sale of homes built unsustainably. It is left to the new occupiers to pay high bills for energy, water, etc. Swale has, for at least 5 years, demanded that developers meet a high standard. TDC should do the same. This is from Wikipedia "As a result of the increase

This ageing population includes everyone. A good number of retirees have alreadv taken steps for their later needs by downsizing, thereby relieving society of a considerable amount of burden.

The Council is to be applauded in applying the National Described Space Standard (March 2015). With regard to accessible and adaptable accommodation, it is worth noting that developers could do much more to make housing more "user friendly" for older people and those with mobility problems, by creating step-free access to main entrances, installing grab-rails and handrails internally and ensuring that external surfaces do not create trip hazards. All of these elements also help able-bodied peopl

I think the Council should definitely insist that developers have a least 10% , more like 15%, dwellings made accessible and adaptable for the older generation.

Put simply, Thanet does not have the infastructure to meet the needs of the current residents, although consideration has been made to add doctors surgeries and local amenities etc this does nothing for the current residents. The council may have large monetary incentives to build houses from the government , but this is such short term thinking, a quick fix. We need jobs and skilled jobs, not the temporary ones that house building will bring and supposed jobs from industrial areas that may be b

This comment relates to water efficiency as Thanet is one of the driest areas in the Country and within a water stressed area, should not this be taken into account by the Government when imposing what might turn out to be an unsustainable number of new housing provision for an already overcrowded area. We are also wondering how the 110 litres of water per person per day requirement is achieved.

I object to the entire proposal, keep Manston as a working Airport, they need jobs not more housing.
