Thanet Labour Group Leader Cllr. Clive Hart is very concerned about the amount of farmland being lost to Thanet following decisions made at the last two meetings of the TDC Planning Committee. Recent applications approved by the Tory dominated group of councillors include an extension to Bradgate Caravan Park at Manston and a golf course adjacent to Two Chimneys Caravan Park on the outskirts of Birchington.

Cllr. Clive Hart said "at the last two planning committee meetings decisions have been made that effectively wipe out over sixty acres of prime agricultural land across Thanet.

Though I appreciate some of the tourism issues raised at these meetings, we are talking about the loss of significantly large areas of Thanet's prime agricultural land. This trend, combined with the current TDC Conservative administrations attempts to build on numerous green spaces within our local towns, is beginning to have a serious effect on our local environment".
