The state of Thanet's sport and open space is a joke and this plan fails to address how it expects to maintain any Sport and Open space let alone increase the above for the amount of over expansion of houses in Ramsgate. I see no evidence that TDC has even looked at or respond to the MENE by Natural England which significantly impacts on the viability of this current plan. The fact is that putting church yards and verges/walkways in to pad out public open space/Green wedges does not cut it. The

As with policy SP20, this policy as drafted is overly restrictive and does not allow for site specific circumstances to be taken into account. The fifth bullet point requires the introduction of linear features , such a native hedgerows. Although there is no objection to the principle of native hedgerows, the policy requires all development to provide such features. There will be circumstances, such at Westgate, where the use of overly linear features may not be appropriate (particularly if this

Green Infrastructure Network Paragraph 4.34 – we welcome the use of our definition of Green Infrastructure. Paragraph 4.36 – for increased clarity we would suggest altering the wording of the final sentence to 'All large development sites will be expected to contribute to Thanet's Green Infrastructure by providing an appropriate mix of the following:' Large development sites should have the capacity to provide a variety of GI elements but those chosen should be in keeping with the surrounding

SUDS: KCC notes that the supporting text on green infrastructure network references the integration of SuDS. It would be beneficial if Policy SP24 made specific reference to such integration for example: "Creating new wildlife and biodiversity habitats, including integration with surface water management." This would reflect the multi-functional objectives of SuDS within the revised NPPF. PRoW and Access Service: The Kent Design Guidance incorporates consideration of existing and new PRoW route

Green Infrastructure Network We consider this section "Unsound" as it stands. This section of the Local Plan overlooks an important component of the environment contrary to statements in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). Natural England's Green Infrastructure Guidance http://publications.naturalengland.org.uk/file/94026 states that "Green Infrastructure also encompasses river systems and coastal environments. Although ponds are mentioned, rivers and coastal environments appear to ha

As a member of Thanet Trees I would like to know how the council can work with us to ensure that trees are planted, protected and promoted to ensure a meaningfully Green Infrastructure. We have already liaised with Dane Valley Woods, Mockett's Wood and more, and are aware of the challenges and lack of funding these much-needed initiatives face. It is proposed that an overall policy to unite ecological groups is needed, particularly with regards re-wilding places such as Manston where there is th

I wish to reiterate my concerns over inadequately detailed areas of the Draft Local Plan: As a founder member of FOCC - Friends of Cliftonville Coastline - I endorse & include the FOCC statement about the lack of explicit commitment within the draft plan to the vital importance of preserving existing trees in our urban spaces & in our streets & a policy of increasing the number of trees in Thanet generally & in particular the towns within Thanet:

SP24 - 4.30 High on the priority conservation list should be skylarks, which are endangered. They can often be heard at the back of King Edward Road - but for how much longer? Much biodiversity can be given a boost by retaining private gardens. Paving over gardens leads to flooding and loss of wildlife habitats, in the same way that concreting and tarmac-ing over great swathes of farmland does.

The Green Infrastructure Network. I wish to comment that this is a welcome stance by the Council Planning Authority and should be encouraged, throughout especially in areas, identified as strategic sites. The policy details that "All large development sites will be expected to contribute to Thanet's Green Infrastructure by providing any of the following: • Integration of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDs) • Planting of hedgerows • Provision of green roofs • Creation of ponds • Creation of urban
