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.

Policy E12 - Undeveloped Beaches We support the objectives of this Policy We also encourage the Council to continue supporting the work of the Thanet Coast Project and the Sandwich and Pegwell Bay NNR Management Steering Group so that, if development is permitted, the work of these groups can help ensure that proposals fully mitigate against any impact upon the designated nature conservation sites.

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

This policy contradicts itself! "New development including new built facilities, the provision of public car parking facilities and new or improved vehicular access to serve such beaches will not be permitted. In the exceptional event that development is permitted..."
