Being a Ramsgate resident, I would like to register my opinion on the Local Plan. I fully support the reuse of the old Manston Airport site as a mixed use development and NOT as a Cargo Airport. The building of schools and surgeries and the good track record of SHP is a wonderful opportunity for Thanet. I would prefer to see regeneration of Ramsgate as a tourist destination - and not polluted by aircraft.

RiverOak should be given the chance to operate freight services. Employment opportunities for the long term would arise. Retain London Manston Airport.

I am writing to register my strong opposition to the use of Manston as a cargo airport. I believe that the old airport site should be used for housing, although properly planned by a master planner such as the architects John Simpson or Hugh Petter.

MCS is opposed to the proposed change of use (please note) Manston Airport not the 'Former Manston Airport' as stated to mixed development whilst the DCO is still in progress.

It was agreed that, in respect of the Proposed Revisions to the draft Thanet District Council Local Plan (Preferred Options), the following representations be sent to Thanet District Council: (b) In future DDC would encourage TDC to make a more positive effort in collaborating with DDC at an early stage under the Duty to Co-operate (DTC) on the future of Manston Airport and other cross-boundary strategic issues and that TDC instigates these DTC meetings from here on where there is a cross-bound

Yes, Yes. Yes to the housing plans on the Manston site. We have viewed the plans and strongly believe the area would greatly benefit from residential expansion, business opportunities with the addition of another station, doctor's surgeries and other facilities. No, No, No to Manston being re-opened as a cargo hub. You cannot have heavy cargo planes flying so low over such a built up area. Cargo planes are all old, anything can go wrong. An incident in the news today where they had to close pa

(Section 3 SP11 proposed housing at manston airport site) I wish to object most strongly to any house building at manston for the following reasons: Thanet is already overcrowded and at the moment schools, Dentists and the hospital cannot cope with numbers we have at the moment. Westwood has quickly become gridlocked since additional houses have been built there and this will worsen with additonal housing at Manston The site at Manston is a natural aquifer for Thanets water supply - building

I am writing to give my support to objections raised concerning the proposed closure of Manston Airport. I also endorse the need for road access to the main towns and the airport. It goes without saying that a fully functioning Thanet Parkway Station would be able to service Manston airport, fulfilling a very necessary and useful purpose. I agree wholeheartedly that Manston Airport is a vital piece of national infrastructure that, once lost, can never be re-invented. I understand that there is

I am writing to make my comments regarding the "Local Plan", in particular the Manston Site. It seems the present owners are proposing to develop it into a site of 2,500 houses plus some open sites and possibly school and surgery. I do not think this is a good idea. I do not think the houses will be for local people and will probably mean an intake of people from London who we will not be able to have any say in the matter. All these houses will mean an increase in traffic, fumes and congestion

Section 2 presents a revised policy for the former Manston Airport to be redesignated for mixed use development. Such a development will have to be carefully designed to ensure that there is no risk of causing pollution of the groundwater in the underlying aquifer. For information: The former Manston Airport overlies chalk which is classified as a principal aquifer. The site lies in Source Protection Zone (SPZ) 1, 2 and 3 for a public water supply well. The well used to pump the water out of th
