Draft Thanet Local Plan - 2031 - Pre-Submission Publication, Regulation 19 Amount of Housing SP11

  • Comment ID: 1414
  • Response Type: Object
The Previous version of the local plan suggested a provision of 12000 houses. This has risen to 17,140. Studying the historic rise in population in can be seen that in 2011 a sudden rise occurred - I suspect due to migrants from Europe, which is unlikely to be repeated given the forthcoming BREXIT. See graphs attached at the end of this submission. Both graphs suggest a 2031 population for Thanet of around 150,000 - a rise of some 25000 from 2011. At a national average occupancy rate of 2.3 per

In line with paragraph 162 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG), Southern Water has undertaken an assessment of existing infrastructure capacity and its ability to meet the forecast demand for 550 new dwellings at this site. That assessment reveals that additional local sewerage infrastructure would be required to accommodate the proposed development Since OFWAT's new approach to water and wastewater connections charging was impleme

As currently worded, Southern Water cannot support this policy as it could create a barrier to statutory utility providers, such as Southern Water, from delivering essential infrastructure. During the time frame of Thanet's Local Plan, Southern Water may have to provide additional water or wastewater infrastructure to serve new and existing customers or meet stricter environmental standards. It is likely that there would be limited options with regard to location, as the infrastructure would ne

On perusal of the information gathering re this proposal it appears that the plan for building this amount of houses is based on figures that are questionable; possibly entirely incorrect.! Also there are nearly 2000 deretict and unoccupied houses in Thanet; surely the first priority should be to focus on these! Thanet is currently already more built on than neighbouring districts; with a population density far above the average for Kent.!! Our one local hospital already struggles to provide

Back in 2015 UKIP proposed building 1,000 houses in Westgate on Sea which was opposed profusely by the residents and now three years later with Conservatives in charge of TDC that number has been increased to 2,000+ house. We were told recently by a TDC Councillor that Westgate on Sea have now been allocated 3% more houses than anywhere else in Thanet, and that Thanet have been allocated 3% more houses that anywhere else in Kent. Does that mean that Kent has been allocated 3% more houses that an

Point 1: Accessibility to these beaches should be considered as part of the transport plan. Due to the popularity of these beaches, there needs to be a better way to park and reach these areas under sustainable transport options. Over-parking occurs in these areas and some form of traffic management should be used. This does have a negative effect to the residents and communities who reside in the area. Point 2: Sewage disposal should be considered as there has been untreated sewage due to high

It's imperative that re-greening Margate is stated as a Strategic priority in the Draft Plan, as inherent ongoing employment & training opportunities would follow from such an urban greening program - an explicit ongoing program of tree planting & requisite after care of trees within our urban areas necessities a local workforce, trained in the upkeep & nurturing of trees - Margate is evidenced by the historic photographic record as being very significantly greener than it is currently & the qua

Provision of accessible natural and semi-natural green space 4.67 The provision of larger areas of open space will be delivered most appropriately through strategic allocations and should be considered integral to the masterplanning of development proposals. 4.68 The Open Space Strategy (2017) identifies an under provision of natural and semi-natural green space based on the fields in trust guidelines of 1.8ha per 1,000 population, of 190.19ha by 2031.

I am writing as I have serious concerns and wish to raise objections regarding the draft local plan itself and also with the inclusion of the sites STl & ST2 relating to Garlinge and Westgate. I would like it noted that Iwish to be able to add further objections to this proposal as and when facts come to light as I have submitted a number of Freedom of Information questions to Thanet District Council that currently remain either completely unanswered or only answered in part, despite now being w
