-MM/025 Thanet does not have the capability to absorb 17,140 new dwellings over the next 11 years. Thanet lacks the infrastructure, medical facilities and employment to sustain the existing level of population.  I have no faith that the developers will put these things in place judging by the  Westwood Cross development still waiting for it's new school  and play area for children all they will  do is set aside the land and then build on that too a few years later. I agree some new housing is required for affordable housing for local families. Which should be delivered by reusing existing empty properties residential and redundant business premises could be taken for new housing to be built on the land and other brown field sites.
