Help start your neighbourhood plan in Margate

Residents of Margate have until Friday 14 February to have their say in the first stage of preparing a neighbourhood plan for the area.
This very short questionnaire was put together by Thanet District Council, which will last over a six week period.
This consultation has begun because the council received applications from a community group in Margate proposing a Margate Neighbourhood Plan Area to set up a Margate Neighbourhood Forum (a group that would lead the process).
A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led plan for guiding the future development and growth of an area. It may contain vision, aims, planning policies, proposals for improving the area or providing for new facilities, or allocation of key sites for specific kinds of development. It may deal with a wide range of issues (like housing, employment, heritage and transport) or it may focus on one or two issues that are of particular importance in a local area.

Please visit our consultation portal to see the relevant documents to comment on the proposals and to find out how you can make a difference at
Councillor David Green, Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing said: “By answering these short questions you are helping to shape your neighbourhood – whether it’s the development of land or social, economic and environmental issues, Thanet Council will be guided by what you want and need in your community.”

If you would like any more information on what neighbourhood planning is all about or you would like a hard copy of the consultation for Margate or Cliffsend please call 01843 577591 or email
