Point 1: It is somewhat concerning that Thanet Council did not contact Highways England on the Local Plan in the last consultation, no statement has been made on this either. The SRN will need to be improved with all of the development in in Kent. Thanet being in the location it is in could become more unsustainable, with travel times increasing if planning is not fully informed. It is stated that it will have a minimal effect with the increase of traffic, there doesn't seem to be any data to kn

Transportation The preparation of the Thanet Transport Strategy (2018) to support the proposals in the draft Thanet Local Plan to 2031 is welcomed. Specifically, the District Council recognises paragraph 6.2.1 that identifies the need and importance to consider the travel implications of future growth of growth plans associated with M2/A2/A299 Brenley Corner. The Strategic Route Network Impact Report (2018) assesses the potential impact of future growth in Thanet on the strategic road network

The development planned under the Local Plan may have limited effect on the junctions mentioned but it will have a great deal of effect on those nearer to home!

The assessment also needs to confer with RiverOak, and optimise the transport to include their suggested upgrades and new roundabouts etc.

The A28 corridor is of strategic importance to both Districts, and indeed for wider East Kent, and the need to understand and plan for the cumulative impacts of growth on the A28 corridor will remain an ongoing and high priority issue. Our comments at the Preferred Options stage (March 2017) sought further understanding of the potential impacts of the draft plan on the A28 corridor, Sturry and the Canterbury ring-road. We therefore welcome in principle the production of the A28 Technical Note (

I understand there will be new roundabout installed town side of the railway bridge on Minnis road. How will the the current narrow road leading under the bridge down to the bay deal with the hugely increased traffic coming off the proposed 'estate'. This will just lead to congestion, increased possibility of accidents due to increased spead and the new road will become a 'rat run' down to what is a very quiet area lived in by what is mosetley an elderly population.
