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

With reference to retail development being kept to central high street, we agree, providing it ends at Argos with the remaining part of the high street leading to Park Road taken for residential use, as we feel the high street is too long and has become very run down. Queen Street has been upgraded considerably with a mix of commercial and residential and is looking better except for the Queens House building which is looking dilapidated and should be residential rather than office space.

Minerals and Waste: KCC notes the reference to the safeguarding of the Ramsgate Port wharf within para 2.42 in that; 'the growth of the Port of Ramsgate is supported as a source of employment and as an attractor of inward investment' and 'the Kent Minerals and Waste Local Plan proposes to safeguard the port for the importation of minerals into Kent'. KCC, as the Minerals and Waste Planning Authority, welcomes the inclusion of the reference to the Ramsgate Port in the Local Plan, which is safegu

It is vital for the future of the Isle that we prioritise the health of our residents and the safety of our visitors – but several aspects of the Draft Plan are worrying in this regard. We are also concerned about the environmental impact of the Bretts site on Ramsgate Port, which we understand has not been subject to a full Environmental Impact Assessment, and are very worried about the implications in the Draft Plan that further development of this type is planned. In the light of the Port's

Emergency Planning and Resilience: KCC recommends that this policy refers to resilient design in consideration of Thanet's 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.

Historical features: We would like to see the Plan recognise the huge number of sites of historical interest in Ramsgate. (For the recent Heritage Open Days, for example, by far the most places open in Thanet were in Ramsgate.) We believe the Local Plan should: * Focus on Ramsgate as a tourist destination for its historical as well as its coastal interest, in conjunction with community groups and Historic England. Ramsgate's HAZ should be highlighted, along with TDC's plans to work with HE & th

Point 1: It has recently come to light that Ramsgate Port has incurred losses for some time. A council petition is currently open (sept 18) and worded "We the undersigned petition the council to accept we have no confidence in the Council's operation of the Royal Harbour and Port. So we demand that Thanet District Council create an independent working party to investigate the losses and bring forward a comprehensive regeneration plan within six months. The council have also suffered financial lo

With the current threat of a cargo hub, along with the imposing works by Bretts, Ramsgate's marine feel is seriously under threat. The two ideas of safeguarding the seafront feel and industrialising the port right next to the marine area is not viable. Due diligence needs to be fully undertaken with any ferry company that TDC show interest in too. I do not believe that it has been done so for the current offer. This really is outrageous, after the TransEuropa debacle.

Whilst I broadly welcome the proposals - and in particular the focus on maximising Ramsgate's "maritime heritage, Royal Harbour, marina, beach and attractive waterfront, and provide economic base of its vibrant mix of town centre uses, visitor economy and café culture" - it is impossible to see how this is consistent with TDC's inexplicable decision to reserve the Manston Airport site for airport use rather than approving the site for mixed development. It is absolutely inconceivable that the g
