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

Coach parking

18.19 Tourism in Thanet depends to a large extent on coach business. Coach travel is to be encouraged as an acceptable alternative to car based visitor travel. Dedicated sites to park coaches are therefore required. Sites at Dreamland and Vere Road in Broadstairs are currently used for such purposes. Replacement provision for coach parking, displaced by development at the Rendezvous, Margate, is needed;

18.20 Ramsgate has no designated coach park, and Broadstairs has limited provision which may prove to be insufficient at peak times. The Council will seek appropriate solutions to accommodate demand on a temporary basis until such time as a specific site may be justified and identified through a review of potential coach parking sites.


Land at Vere Road, Broadstairs,as identified on the Proposals Map willbe retained for use as coach parking to serve the tourist trade.

The Councilwill consider the need to identifya site toaccommodate demand for coach parking atother locations.
