The Vision: the Council's aspirations for 2031 As an individual, and member of Thanet Trees where is the consideration for trees and woodland in the VISION? Thanet is one of the least wooded areas in the country and trees need to be considered in any future plans. Any new developments must be offset by the planting of trees as Sainsbury's did the first time it was built, but new trees also need to be planted throughout urban areas and in farming areas also. Thanet Trees suggest that it is imper

Overall Conclusions * Having considered the Thanet Local Plan, Gladman is concerned about a range of matters including housing provision and how the plan deals with development outside the urban and village confine * The Plan must be positively prepared, effective, justified and consistent with national policy to be found sound at examination. In the first instance the Council must start with clearly defining a NPPF and PPG compliant OAN by developing an unconstrained requirement which properly

2.1 The NPPF 2012 put the 'presumption in favour of sustainable development' at the forefront of planning, to be seen as the 'golden thread' running through both plan making and decision taking (para 14). NPPF 2012 para 7 identifies the three overarching dimensions of sustainable development as an economic objective, a social objective and an environmental objective. 2.2 As confirmed by paras 25 - 27 of the draft Local Plan, the plan has been prepared in line with the sustainable development pr

Sustainable Development https://consult.thanet.gov.uk/consult.ti/TLP_PRE_SUB/viewCompoundDoc?docid=9428628&sessionid=&voteid=&partId=9428916 Thanet Trees believes there is not enough emphasis on tree planting and protection in the current Local Draft Plan. Trees are vital for human life, wildlife and the environment. Within an urban setting they not only mitigate pollution but provide shelter and protection against increased rainfall (due to more extreme weather brought about by climate change

Point 30: The selection of key sites to accommodate new development of housing has included building new homes on Manston Airport. But, as stated by Inspector Nunn at the Public Inquiry in Summer 2017, held at Thanet District Council, the airport is still to be used for aviation only and Policies SP05 and EC4 are still valid, which seems to have been ignored throughout this emerging Local Plan. There is a DCO at the Pre-Examination stage, for the airport to remain just that - an airport! Objecti

* I disagree with this statement. "Westwood has strengthened its position as a retail destination, as well as being firmly established as a town centre, and has developed as an integrated community, with housing, business, leisure, sport and recreation, and education. This has been supported by investment in transport infrastructure creating a safe and attractive pedestrian environment at its centre." Westwood is NOT a town centre. Nor is it pedestrianised, except for in the heart of the various

Point 32 re infrastructure plans: A ring road has been planned around certain areas of Thanet, but it will cause chaos as it doesn't join up! Drivers will be able to get so far, then have to turn around or drive through residential areas to get back to a main road. It breaks in about 4 places.

Failure to acknowledge an important equestrian community in Thanet has led to a lack of direct policy on Public Rights of Way or keeping open spaces accessible to horse riders. There are also missed opportunities to utilise the potential to grow equestrian tourism in the area which would benefit the economy. Limited mitigation strategies have been put in place to alleviate problems caused by siting new developments next to large livery yards and riding stables. Road improvements must consider ex

The 'Local Plan' is actually a wish list of strategic ramifications linked to the requirement for more housing. I note that from ONS figures the number of houses required in Thanet up until 2013 almost matches the expected population increase - roughly 17000 of each or one house per person! This seems a somewhat bizarre correlation. The Plan is littered with comments such as "cannot be predicted", "uncertain effect", "could result", "there is potential", "may help", "be expected", "are unknown"
