Draft Thanet Local Plan - 2031 - Pre-Submission Publication, Regulation 19 Tourist Accommodation E07

Thanet District Council has clearly identified that there is high demand for additional hotel accommodation within the district, and therefore it considered that the existing wording is not explicit in its support of hotels that do not neatly fall within the 'serviced tourist accommodation' or 'self-catering tourist accommodation' (Policy E09) categories. We consider that wording in the policy should be amended to explicitly support normal hotel development inappropriate locations.

Policy E07 - Serviced Tourist Accommodation Natural England supports the provision of clause 4 to this policy and the recognition that some types of tourist accommodation have the potential for similar recreational pressure impacts on Thanet's designated nature conservation sites as new housing.

Since the closure of many guest houses in Thanet, the area is desperately short of decent hotels. Also, business rates seem too high to sustain small businesses in the town centres.

With respect to point 3: Given that the undeveloped land is primarily best and most versatile land we suggest that the policy should seek to steer such development away from best and most versatile land.
