* TDC has not given appropriate consideration to alternatives to delivering its housing need requirements before settling on a new settlement option (with reference to The New Settlement Mitigation Strategy, November 2016) * RiverOak objects to proposals for a new settlement at Manston as it would result in the irrevocable loss of Manston Airport. * It also represents a wholly unsustainable option that would require significant mitigation and infrastructure improvements to remedy the fact that

Sustainability Appraisal Natural England is pleased to note that an SA report has now been produced to site alongside the Local Plan. We have carried out a light-touch review of the document and are generally happy with its contents although we note from Appendix E – Policy Appraisal Matrices that there is still some tying up required between the SA and HRA. We are pleased to see that the sustainability objective and decision making criteria around biodiversity include enhancement as well as pro

KCC considers that the following statement used throughout the Sustainability Appraisal (SA) supporting the draft Local Plan is incorrect: "The effects on with respect to ecology and landscape are likely to be lesser for the development on brownfield land, when compared to development of greenfield land". The ecological interest of a site should be determined by the District Council's desk-top assessment of all site applications undertaken as part of the SHLAA exercise. It should therefore not

The Sustainability Appraisal reviews proposed policy SP05 and concludes that the policy is beneficial in terms of socio-economic objectives and will clearly contribute to the District's housing supply and improvements to community facilities such as the provision of a new primary school. The site is well connected The New Mitigation Settlement Study (November 2016) considers if and how a new settlement option could be developed in a sustainable manner in order to assist in the delivery of the C

The Sustainability appraisal should contain a table clarifying how sustainability objectives relate to SEA topics. The topic 'soil' does not appear to be covered adequately in the sustainability appraisal. This should be resolved by identifying best and most versatile agricultural land as a key sustainability issue for the Thanet district. Unfortunately, it is not identified as a 'key issue' and this results in the preservation of BMV land not appearing as a key question in the SA framework. It

THANET LOCAL PLAN - SUSTAINABILITY Table 1: SA Objectives Health, Safety and Security Objective 2: "to maintain appropriate healthcare." But QEQM and Birchington surgery can't cope with current demands, let alone future ones. Objective 4: "To... reduce crime and fear of crime." But it is strongly feared that the developments planned for Birchington are already attracting interest from London boroughs, and that thousands of homeless people and untrustworthy characters will be dumped in the ar

Can someone explain to me by cutting the transport links out of Thanet (removing the airport) and not improving them (the new train station wont improve transport links), how can TDC accept the 17000 new homes figure? Thanet has 3 roads of Thanet and that is it... These roads can only take so much and adding 17000 homes or a minimum of 34000 cars will make these roads full and unable to cope. Due to this fact businesses will not come to Thanet as too congested and not London. These plans will m
