It was agreed that, in respect of the Proposed Revisions to the draft Thanet District Council Local Plan (Preferred Options), the following representations be sent to Thanet District Council: (a) Evidence from Dover District Council's (DDC) Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) has concluded that Dover District is best placed in a Shepway and Dover Housing Market Area (HMA) rather than a Thanet, Canterbury and Dover HMA which has been identified in Thanet District Council's (TDC) SHMA.

We write on behalf of our client the Church Commissioners for England (the Commissioners) which manages a well-diversified investment portfolio to support the Church's work across the country and is a long-term landowner in the Thanet District area. We understand that the Council are currently consulting on the Proposed Revisions to the Local Plan. The Proposed Revisions to the Local Plan seeks views on three main changes to the Local Plan Preferred Options 2015. These relate to:  The re-desig

I object strongly to building houses on grade 1 agricultural land when more could be done to find brownfield sites, also the view across the fields to Reculver would be gone forever, one of the reasons for moving here was the open space nearby, its awful to think that this might all be concreted and tarmacked over in the near future. I think the "Local Plan" will not benefit local people, the houses will be bought by people from outside the area e.g. London.

I have experienced difficulty today submitting my views on the Local Plan Consultation to your website. I understand the period allowed for public consultation is due to finish tonight, so I am sending you this e-mail with a brief precis of what I wanted to say in greater detail, to comply with the deadline. I have been working in architecture and planning for the last 45 years, and are now retired. I understand the 'new' Local Plan, currently under revision, covers the period from 2011 to 2031

Natural England notes the increase in housing numbers proposed from 12,000 to 17,140 and we are satisfied with the conclusions of the Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) in respect of this.

I still have very significant concerns about the amount of housing required. I understand this has been calculated by reference to a particular methodology and based on historical data, but anyone who has lived in Thanet for the last 10 years or more is aware that some of this migration into Thanet has come from London Boroughs buying up housing to place their tenants in Thanet en masse. En masse immigration like this should surely not continue into the future if such London Boroughs are allocat

As been said before, this sort of increase to a high unemployment area is beyond believe, not only to the strain to utilities and other services but to the longer term effect to the whole area and to council expenditure which it has trouble with at this time and also to most locals who would not be able to afford these houses.

Keep the aviation protection for Manston Airport in the Local Plan. I do not agree with the provision for housing totals. Thanet cannot cope. There is no infrastructure in place to support such vast housing proposals. I am very concerned at the 'affordable housing' aspect. I believe affordable housing is very different to social housing. There is a need for more social housing but Thanet cannot cope with these sorts of figures for housing in general. It is nonsense.

Good afternoon I'm having trouble accessing your online site so would like to make my concerns known through this email. I live in Victoria Avenue so my life would be greatly affected by the building of houses at the end of my lovely quiet road. The infrastructure in Westgate cannot cope. School places are not available, we only have one doctors surgery which is excellent but over stretched already I understand. Why are there plans to build on prime agricultural land? Why does this small to

Section 2 - Housing: Further to my submissions relating to the initial Draft Local Plan it appears that no consideration has been given to these comments other than to seek to increase the housing provision to 17,140. I cannot see that this proposal is based upon sound methodology. The council has a clear duty to make adequate provision for housing for local needs through to 2030 but it appears that the figure proposed widely exceeds the likely demand within that period for "local housing for lo
