Call for Sites 2018


Thanet Council is continuing work on its draft Local Plan, which will set out the long term planning strategy for the district and allocate land for future development. We are inviting people to identify any further sites that may be available for development. If you are aware of such a site in Thanet, this is your opportunity to tell us about it.  

Any submission should be made using the on-line form, which can be found here:  Call for sites questionnaire. This sets out the information we need to help us consider such submissions. If you are not already registered on the consultation web-site, you will need to register before submitting your site(s). A copy of the Kent Protocol assessment form is also available to view as an indication as to how we will be assessing any sites proposed.  Please make sure you have all of the information available before you complete the online form - as some fields are mandatory it is not possible to save a partially completed form to return to later.

A separate submission should be made for each site. An Ordnance Survey map extract clearly identifying the site will be required to accompany the submission.  Please note that only sites of more than 0.15 hectares or capable of accommodating more than 5 units should be submitted.

If it is not possible to return submissions electronically, a copy of the form can be downloaded or a paper copy obtained from the Council’s Strategic Planning Team. Submissions should be sent via email to the Strategic Planning Team at or by post to Thanet District Council, PO Box 9, Margate, CT9 1XZ.

Sites identified will be assessed in relation to future development needs through the Local Plan process. It is important to be aware that sites brought to our attention will not necessarily be considered suitable or allocated for development.

Submissions should be received by 5pm on Friday 16th March 2018.

If you have previously drawn our attention to a potential development site, there is no need to make a repeat submission unless the circumstances of your original submission have changed, or you can provide additional information to support the submission (such as phasing information). If you have any queries regarding a previous site submission, please contact the Strategic Planning team.

If your site already has planning permission, there is no need to submit a site through this process.
