I strongly protest tto your proposed use of top grade agricultural ground for the purpose of house building. There is a desperate need for the UK to be more self sufficient in farming production – already too much of our vegetables and fruit comes from abroad. Your proposal is grossly counter – productive

We do not want any building on farm land and despite your saying about the growing population in the area, this at the moment is only being enlarged by people from London not by people wanting to come to Thanet for work as companies are leaving the area not flocking to come. Once again it is the same old story of someone sitting behind a desk or being shipped in from another area with not the first idea of what Thanet wants or needs but just that it looks good on paper, not necessary that it wo

For the reasons we explain in the response to Section 4 and 8, and the previous consultation, CPRE considers that the housing target is too high given environmental and potential infrastructure constraints. Infrastructure capacity has not been demonstrated (including highway capacity and timescale to meeting AQMP targets) and the council does not appear to have considered the extent to which agricultural land and water supply / quality should be considered a constraint. It is critical that sites

This additional allocation does not appear to affect any locally designated sites in the immediate area. However, we have been contacted by a concerned resident regarding the site. They state that this site has considerable bird interest, including skylark in the breeding season. Appropriate bird breeding survey must be carried out at this site prior to any approvals and adequate mitigation provided for loss of breeding opportunities and this includes for farmland birds. Appropriate bird breedi

Highways and Transportation KCC – as Local Highway Authority – recommends that consideration is given to the inclusion of a requirement for the provision of a new internal spine road to local distributor standard, together with appropriately designed junctions at both Shottendane Road and Manston Road. This will ensure that any proposed development on this site will adequately accommodate appropriate road, footway and cycle access to local amenities and the wider highway network. Waste The Co

Tesco have concerns over the timescales and feasibility of the some of the sites currently considered to provide the additional dwellings required to meet the updated Objectively Assessed Need. As set out above, we are have serious reservations over whether the former airport site should be included as a strategic mixed-use allocation in the emerging local plan. Tesco also has concerns over the deliverability of Land at Manston Road/Shottendane Road and Land at Manston Court Road/Haine Road for

Section 10: While the time has come to revisit the need for a Birchington bypass it is clear that the proposal as shown in less than adequate maps attached to the plan would, if pursued, transfer a bottle neck from Birchington Square to "Coffin House Corner" these proposals need further work before they are finalised as the potential effects upon residents could be devastating. Others, representing the towns and parishes of Thanet, have made detailed and very specific submissions but I wish the

I live on shottendane road, very sad to see this has been proposed . Thanet is already struggling as it is with an overflow of population in this area as it is at gp surgerys , schools , dentists , QEQM , adding more houses ( people ) to this area, how are they going to cope ? Shottendane road already has a tendency of surface ground and flooding adding hundreds of more houses to the land is only going to make this worse .
