New Local Plan consultation open

Thanet District Council is inviting representations on the ‘soundness’ of the draft Local Plan to 2031.

A step-by-step guide is available on the consultation website.  You will need to register (or log in, if you were registered for the previous consultation) in order to submit your comments.

Remember: keep it factual, not emotive.  There is no requirement to build any houses on Manston Airport, and there are no targets for housing set by Government.

With regard to Manston Airport, we suggest writing a request to remove any references to the Avia report, which was determined to be highly flawed, and had conditions in its publication that meant it should not be used for planning purposes.  Also, suggest that specific text is included to protect Manston Airport for aviation purposes only.

The consultation website is and the consultation closes on Thursday 4th October 2018.
