Draft Thanet Local Plan - 2031 - Pre-Submission Publication, Regulation 19 General Housing Policy Requirements SP12

Policy SP12 provides guidance around housing development. The policy comprehensively addresses the requirements of larger scale residential development and residential development on allocated land. Upon review of the policy, we consider that the policy does not go far enough in promoting residential development on appropriate brownfield land and appropriate opportunity sites. It is considered that thesesites should be a preferential location over and above residential development on Green Belt

There are significant concerns around the high numbers of additional housing allocated and the associated environmental impact, including significant increase in pollution levels, poor air quality impacting upon local health, and further loss of green space in Thanet. Also the infrastructure plans are inadequate for vehicular, pedestrian and alternative modes of transport such as cycling. Westwood Cross is a prime example where road improvements were seen as an after thought, but should have bee

The draft Local Plan (endorsed by Thanet District Council but opposed by its officers) has pushed 2500+ houses to be built on Greenfield sites and in areas with little or no additional infrastructure.

3 – Housing Strategy Paragraph 3.9 – Natural England notes that the Local Plan makes housing provision for 17,140 additional homes over the 20 year period to 2031. Policy SP12 - General Housing Policy We would query whether the reference to Policy SP26 in clause 7 of this policy only serves to confuse matters. ALL net increases in residential development within Thanet District will be required to contribute to the SAMM Plan whether they are sites allocated in the Local Plan or windfalls. SP26

Point 1: Table 3 (Paragraph 3.15) appears to contain housing data from 2018 for which only the AMR 2017 is available, rough calculations suggest 228 houses was built 2017/18. Point 2: The local plan is proposing that population will step up because of the policy making in the local plan. This is not true and not evidenced in the ONS projections; population in 2017 is also lower than the projection which shows a count of 900 less people in Thanet. With population not being realised this will als

6.1 Alongside policies to allocate sufficient land to meet the Council's growth requirements over the plan-period, the draft Local Plan includes policies guiding how decisions should be made by the Council. Once adopted the Local Plan will replace the 'saved' policies of the Thanet Local Plan (2006). Where necessary we comment on the soundness of proposed policies. 6.2 Policy SP12 (General Housing Policy) sets out a number of policy requirements for residential developments, to apply for all si

Policy SP12 - General housing policy This policy requires all residential development allocated in the plan to ensure the provision of digital infrastructure and the installation of Fibre to the Home.
