A new planning application for a primary and secondary radar installation at Kent International Airport has been received by Thanet District Council.

The application is for a radar that would be 32.5 metres tall, with radio antennae and lightning conductor fitted to it. It would be located along the Manston Road, further up from the Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Museum, as you head towards Margate.

Supporting information submitted to the council explains that the radar would provide clearer and more accurate details of aircraft movement over a wider area than the previous system.

Details can be found on the council’s website using UK Planning under the reference number 09/0637. The application can also be viewed by visiting Thanet’s Gateway Plus in Cecil Street, Margate from 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, with extended opening until 8pm on Thursdays. Thanet’s Gateway Plus is also open from 9am to 5pm on Saturdays.

The deadline for comments to be received is Friday 23 July 2010.
