Paragraph 4.3 CPRE Kent Branch and its members have experienced direct frustration online consultation portal, including many hours work being lost owing to it not saving correctly and cumbersome functionality.You will note our districts offices comment upon this. The Council is under no duty to use bespoke consultation software, particularly if doing so is causing time-consuming back office delays. As CPRE Kent comment upon matters across the County we have direct experience of many differen

Will adverts/announcements appear in only one of the local newspapers? If so, then which one? And will it appear in the printed edition or the online edition or both? When announcing policy changes please also put notices in the town hall and in public libraries and on any other publicly accessible noticeboards. Para 4.4 - the idea of charging a fee is an assault on democracy. How exactly would this be implemented? Will the council warn the citizens before charging? Or will the citizens be cha

Chapter 4How we Consult Para4.4CPRE Thanet are extremely concerned with the quite bizarre proposal "Where long and complex representations are submitted on paper or by email, an administration fee may be charged when they have to be entered manually by officers. Based on previous experience, it is anticipated that the vast majority of representations would not be affected by fee charges. In order to avoid any mis-interpretation or mis-understanding of your representations, or administrative cha

The County Council welcomes the commitment to the increased use of digital forms of communication when consulting with the public, which should improve accessibility of planning consultations. It is recommended that details of social media channels should be included. The County Council queries whether there are additional ways to support and reach out to people with protected characteristics and other marginalised or harder to reach communities – for example, through correspondence with faith,

It is CPRE Kent Branch office strong opinion that seeking to charge an administration fee to process representations upon planning matters is unlawful. It is not clear as to what power the Council could possibly be relying upon to lawfully make this charge. For example, it can not be Section 93 of the Local Government Act 2003 as this specifically defines discretionary services as those services that an authority has the power but not a duty to provide. On planning matters, Thanet Council will

18. The Council agrees that a 'one size fits all' approach to involvement is ineffective and inappropriate, it is agreed that the nature and specificity of the documents in question should determine how involvement is managed. 19. The document states that people will be informed by: • Online information published on the TDC website and social media. • Mail outs to anyone who has requested notification by email. • Local press adverts. 20. The Council accepts that these are valid methods, however

This is a general observation based on the fact I do not have any online access. I rely on newspaper articles or word of mouth. Often I find, that dates have passed for any comment to be submitted. This also applies within Cliffsend and the PC seems to rely on computers and there is no attempt at contact with residents. (Of course COVID had made things difficult with staying at home).

4.2: Please make the most of opportunities to work with partner organisations, especially Town and Parish Councils who can provide local information and perspectives. Documents may also be made available at their offices and their staff or volunteers could help to support TDC with setting up public meetings/exhibitions etc. : 4.3: The on-line portal is inadequate for commenting on complex or large scale planning issues so its use should be limited to straightforward matters. 4.4: It would be u
