I am writing to reaffirm the view of the Conservative group on Thanet District Council concerning the Manston Airport site. We have always supported an aviation use for the site and are disappointed that the draft local plan does not contain policies which would clearly designate such a use. We understand that the Council's appointed aviation consultants, Avia, concluded that an airport at Manston would not be viable during the plan period and , as a result, the Council's evidence base could not

The quality of life for Thanet residents is under threat from the proposed 24/7/365 cargo hub. The DCO applicant ("RSP") has clearly stated that "significant adverse effects have been identified as being likely as a result of an increase in noise" in Ramsgate, Manston, Wade, West Stourmouth and Pegwell Bay. The RSP proposal goes on to say "aircraft noise would increase to a point where there would be a perceived change in the quality of life for occupants of buildings in these communities". In a

I live close to Westwood cross and the report notes that the Westwood cross area suffers from traffic congestion. Putting aside inconvenience to local people, congestion will also deter shoppers who come in from outside the area. A new housing development is sited beside Manston Court road and close to Westwood cross, the road infrastructure should be improved dramatically before any further housing schemes are initiated. Otherwise, the centre of thanet will grind to a complete halt!

I object very strongly to the Manston Airport site being considered for anything other than Aviation related business and Aviation related activities. I object very strongly to the Manston airport site being used for housing. Manston MUST REMAIN as an AIRPORT if this area is to survive and thrive. If the Manston site is let go through shortsightedness to become brown-field - and then housing - Thanet will be doomed to a future of overcrowding, congested roads, longer waiting lists for hospital

I have not had sufficient time to read, research and respond to the whole package of documents and I feel that the process is such that residents are excluded from participating fully in the process. So, my response is necessarily restricted to the parts in which I am most interested and have been able to read and research. First and foremost: Thanet does not have a housing shortage, it has an employment crisis. There are many empty plots of land around Thanet that have not been developed beca

My main concern as a Ramsgate resident is the appalling discrepancy that arises in the funding that Margate receives when compared to Ramsgate or indeed Broadstairs and why an endless pit of money appears to be available for improvements and projects within Margate, Turner, Dreamland, Seafront etc and yet Ramsgate has received no funding for schemes such as Project Motorhouse etc. It would appear that TDC is happy to let areas that are inherently far more attractive than Margate such as the Roya

Regarding Manston Airport, I feel it is extremely important that it retains its "aviation use only" status. Thanet is in a unique and advantageous position to be become a very significant player in the growing aviation industry nationally, which will obviously be a very important in the rejuvenation of mainly Thanet but also the whole of the SE. It would be utter madness to lose the gift that we have inherited and that other counties envy. I'm sure that the current council members do not wish

Thanet has one of the largest density equestrian communities in Kent. The hub of the community is at Manston. Two large riding schools are situated on Alland Grange Road and Woodchurch Road. On Woodchurch Road there are two other large to medium sized livery yards. In addition to these equestrian premises, there are livery yards on Vincent Road, Nash Road and at Quex Park. The other larger premises are Crumps Farm on Shuart Lane St. Nicholas and Plum Pudding Island at Minnis Bay. At Kingsgate th

I would like Manston Airport re-opened - it will bring prosperity and jobs to Thanet and I would like to see it up and running. It is a National Asset and must not be built on under any circumstances
