Thanet Parkway Railway Station DDC supports Policy SP45: New Railway Station that safeguards land to the west of Cliffsend for KCC's Thanet Parkway Railway Station project. The proposed provision of a new railway station will provide an opportunity to enhance connectivity to Discovery Park and in turn positively contribute toward the economic regeneration of East Kent.

RSP is supportive of the proposals for a new railway station close to the airport. Discussions will continue with Kent County Council as the scheme's promoters to consider ways in which the new station could be utilised in the future to assist with airport operations both for passenger and freight transfer.

A total waste of public money and an even bigger potential white elephant given that Kent County Council has not secured any funding from Central Government towards its costs. An unmanned station miles from the town centres in the middle of a field in the middle of nowhere up an embankment exposed to northerly and westerly winds - definitely not a sound idea in the first place. Then there is the issue of passengers reaching the station in the first place as bus services are few and far between,

6.18 refers to new Parkway railway station, this implies that it will be unmanned. The new railway station needs to include facilities for station users i.e. toilets.

We agree that there should be a Parkway Station in order to relieve the strain on Ramsgate Railway Station , even more so with new developments at Manston Green, Westwood, Cliffsend and possibly mixed use development at the former Manston Airport site.

This unsatisfactory approach to infrastructure investment is carried through in relation to the Thanet Parkway Railway Station, a project which does not, and cannot, meet any reasonable investment test but is a vanity project pursued by the County Council and Network Rail. for reasons which escape professional commentators like myself.

With an investment and improvement in high-speed rail links to the airport via a Thanet Parkway station, then Manston airport would be significantly more attractive as a viable alternative to LGW and LHR for either freight or passenger flights. The idea of a rail link to Manston airport is not a new idea and has been established for over twenty years ever since I moved to Thanet. I consider this a missed opportunity, which should have been implemented many years ago, and may have had a considera

It is to be located in the open countryside and any users will find it most difficult to reach as bus services at 'rush hour' times of travel are limited and at other times, non-existent for most Thanet residents. That will mean most of the potential users are most likely to have to travel there by car. Not an ideal for air quality across Thanet. The exposed location for an un-manned station is not one that many people will be at ease to use. The only real benefit is that it will shave only a m

We dionot need a new railway station. Ramsgate Station should have extended Parking into the Warre Recreation Ground or build a multi storey car park at this site.

We believe Thanet Parkway Station is a hugely expensive white elephant which will destroy farmland and encourage travellers to regard it as normal to drive some distance out of town in individual vehicles in order to park for the day and catch a train! Instead we would wish to see money spent on upgrading the lines from Ashford to the existing Thanet stations, and discussions take place between KCC, TDC and SouthEastern about how ticket prices for peak time travel to and from Canterbury, Ashford
