Thanet's Beaches Natural England supports the final caveat in Policies E10 to E12 making it clear that any development on Thanet's beaches will be subject to the Habitats Regulations. However, we would suggest amending the wording slightly to "Development proposals must avoid or fully mitigate against any impact upon the designated nature conservation sites" as this would better reflect the avoid, mitigate compensate hierarchy as set out in paragraph 118 of the NPPF.

Free parking would attract more people to the area. The new charges are exhorbitant and hardly compatible with getting visitors to return. In fact comments have been made by several residents on Facebook that they've heard visitors saying they will never come back if that's what they've got to pay for parking! False economy, TDC. Free or low parking = more visitors spending money in our coastal towns.

It is of significant concern that the Draft Plan states beaches will be developed, yet fails to explicitly state *which* beeches are protected from aggressive commercial development & which are protected, as the blanket statements about habitat & environmental protections are not made clear & the general public cannot be expected to know to which beaches these unknown protections apply, or whether these protections can be waived if developers offer merger contributions to modest local causes, fo

Development of beaches is inadequately described - there is no 'meat in the bones' of this highly complex & community pertinent issue - detailed considerations expressed in 'suggestions'.

Your development plans for beaches in Cliftonville are unclear. What sort of development would you allow at Walpole Bay for instance? Palm Bay is designated undeveloped which makes no sense since it currently supports a cafe, a Jet Ski business, and a huge car park. What does this mean for the rest of the beaches on the stretch between the Main Sands and Walpole Bay? If we want to revitalise the heritage and local amenities of the Cliftonville Coastline these beaches need to be given more detail

Viking Bay and the centre of Broadstairs - major tourist attraction bringing huge amounts to the economy. Why do we offer disgraceful public toilet facilities on the beach and surrounds? Yes, I know that there is no legal requirement to provide toilets for visitors but the fact remains that visitors want these facilities, paid or otherwise and judge us on this. Some creative thinking, public/private/ voluntary partnership is urgently needed on this
