Emergency Planning and Resilience: KCC recommends that this policy refers to resilient design in consideration of its coastal location, climate change, flooding and other natural threats. This should include high quality public realm with consideration of how this can enhance the sense of place as well as providing shelter.

Point 1: Parking is a problem with Margate especially when a festival, or bank holiday brings in tourists from outside the area. Some statement on supporting sustainable transport should be made and some form of handling the amount of vehicles that come to Margate at peak times should be considered in transport planning. Point 2: A research paper "Down by the sea: Visual arts, artists and coastal regeneration" by Jonathon Ward (International Journal of Cultural Policy). The paper suggests that m

We support the council's vision to build on Margate's success as a fashionable seaside resort. We think it is appropriate to include a specific policy relating to the Lido. Paragraph 2.28 recognises that The Lido is run down and in a most important strategic location close to the Margate Winter Gardens and The Turner Contemporary. It is also an important heritage asset. This paragraph and policy SP08 rightly recognise that this heritage asset is in need of significant restoration and repair and

Policy SP08 is paramount to the future of Margate, relating specifically to the continued regeneration and development of the town as a contemporary seaside resort. Margate Seafront and Harbour Arm Part 3) of Policy SP08 relates specifically to the area designated as the Margate Seafront and Harbour Arm. We recommend that the wording is amended, as shown in bold below, to ensure that the nature of future development within the Margate Seafront and Harbour Arm remains positive and encourages the

We at Margate Coastal Park Promotion Group would like to see reference int he local plan to Margate Coastal Park, a publicly-owned stretch of landscape running from Botany Bay in the east to Old Boundary Road in the west, the entire length of coastline of the borough of Margate. All our research on the growth, development, significance and current state of this public landscape, gathered over several decades by the people of Margate Pro Bono Publico (for the public good) has been publicly share

Policy SP08 – Margate / Policy SP09 – Ramsgate / Policy SP10 – Broadstairs All three of these policies currently contain the same caveat around International and European designated sites: Any development permitted by this policy must not adversely affect any designated nature conservation sites either directly or as a result of increased visitor pressure. All development must comply with policies relating to the Protection of International and European Designated Sites and associated Strateg

Allocation Ref No 5411 - allocation of 32 dwellings Cottage Car Park, New Street. I am WHOLLY against this. This is an important car park in the Old Town in Margate where parking is at a premium, and is in constant use.

Paragraphs 2.23 – 2.33 The Local Plan is considered unsound as it is neither positively prepared nor effective. It does not acknowledge the need for the relocation of the existing RNLI lifeboat station or consider the development and infrastructure requirements necessary to enable the continued location of an all-weather lifeboat station in Margate. The current Mersey-class all weather lifeboat has been in service for over 25 years and is nearing the end of its operational life. In 2014 the RN

SP08 – Margate The Draft Local Plan is considered unsound as Policy SP08 has not been positively prepared and is neither effective nor justified. The policy does not acknowledge the requirement to relocate the RNLI all-weather lifeboat station and is overly restrictive in the uses that it permits given its demonstrable requirement. Policy SP08 should be amended as follows: The Council will seek to support the continued regeneration and development of Margate as a contemporary seaside resort i

6 The Lido. Comment: The Lido is owned by TDC but has not been maintained, nor marketed for leisure activities. The freehold for sale didn't include the whole site, making it unattractive to perspective buyers. Either sell it all or look after the lido properly. It is a site and sight for sore eyes, being totally neglected, as is TDC's wont with all their assets, it would seem.
