Cliffsend Neighbourhood Plan Area


Cliffsend is a village with obvious boundaries of Manston Airport and the sea, the Golf Club, the Lord of the Manor road junction roundabouts and the Nature Reserve.

Manston Airport or 'Kent International Airport' is situated to the north of the village, with the East end of the runway preventing the village expanding northwards. However only a few commercial flights run from here, so noise is kept to a minimum, and there are no commercial night flights.

The Lord of the Manor roundabouts link Thanet with the new A299 Hengist Way (Canterbury / London), and the new A256 Ebbsfleet Way (Sandwich / Dover).

Pegwell Bay to the South of the village has many levels of environmental and nature protection and is of internationally important interest; the coast contains the Pegwell Bay Country Park and the remains of the Hoverport pad.

The Golf Club separates Cliffsend from the neighbouring parish of Minster.
