Point 1: Accessibility to these beaches should be considered as part of the transport plan. Due to the popularity of these beaches, there needs to be a better way to park and reach these areas under sustainable transport options. Over-parking occurs in these areas and some form of traffic management should be used. This does have a negative effect to the residents and communities who reside in the area. Point 2: Sewage disposal should be considered as there has been untreated sewage due to high

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.

Parking charges are way too high to attract repeat visits. Bad business! They need to be free or virtually free to get people back!

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

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

We need none of the above to either MINNIS BAY or WESTGATE. We do not want these naturally beautiful bays destroyed by increased population. The beaches currently handle a large number of holiday makers,any more would only add to the pollution of what are currently Blue Flag beaches. The diversity of birds and other wild life would be lost for the sake of ice creams, burgers and chips etc. Is this not wrong in the way our current environment is going.
