Local Plan consultation - public drop-in sessions

Thanet District Council is holding a series of drop-in sessions for members of the public to support its ten week public consultation on the issues and options for a new Local Plan.
Members of the planning team will be available at the following venues to discuss the Local Plan, to help people respond to the consultation and to answer any questions.
There’s no need to confirm or book a place, just turn up on the following days:
  • Tuesday 2nd July - Customs House, Harbour Parade, Ramsgate, 2pm-8pm
  • Thursday 4th July - Thanet’s Gateway Plus, Cecil Street, Margate, 2pm-8pm
  • Tuesday 9th July - Queens Road Baptist Church, Broadstairs, 2pm-8pm
  • Thursday 11th July - Minster Village Hall, Minster, 2pm-8pm
This is the first of three stages of consultation, before the council adopts a new Local Plan in 2015.
The Local Plan will be the council’s overarching planning policy document covering the whole district up to 2031.
It covers how much new housing should be provided and where, the growth of the economy and how many jobs are likely to develop, local infrastructure, community facilities and the future role of Westwood and our coastal town centres.  It also identifies what land should be protected from development such as our parks and open spaces.
To develop a new Local Plan the council has to consider very detailed evidence, which is examined by an inspector.
The council is keen to ensure that members of the public are provided with all of the relevant information to inform their consultation responses. This means that the consultation document is very detailed. 
If anyone needs any help or advice about any of the information provided, or would like to speak with a member of the planning team, they are encouraged to attend the drop-in sessions or to e-mail or call 01843 577591.
The consultation document and questionnaire are available to complete online at
This consultation is open until Wednesday 14 August.

  1. A council that doesn't know what to do. So many years wasted and more to waste.
