Thanet Green Party welcomes the addition of the Draft Infrastructure Working Copy to support the Local Plan which shows how TDC aims to integrate housing strategy with supporting facilities.

  1. Cycle Routes: We commend the proposal to develop a new network of shared cycle routes. We would urge the Council to work with Sustrans to link these to the existing Viking Coastal Trail for leisure users and on the charity’s Safe Routes to Schools and other initiatives aimed at daily travellers. We would wish to see cycling promoted actively in Thanet, including through the addition of many more secure cycle storage facilities.
  2. (RELATES TO PROPOSED ROAD NETWORK - PLEASE SEE SECTION 8)
  3. Other infrastructure: We would encourage TDC to petition for expanded Doctor’s Surgery and medical facilities in the Birchington area in particular, as well as to meet the needs of new housing developments elsewhere, but acknowledge that poor current levels of funding are making it difficult to secure any funding for NHS expansion to supply need.
