Plans in for demolition of cooling towers

Plans to demolish the three cooling towers and chimney at Richborough
have been submitted to Thanet District Council.

There has already been extensive demolition of buildings on the site
over the last 15 years and now the latest application asks for approval
to demolish the 97 metre high cooling towers and the 127 metre high
chimney. None of these structures have been used since 1996 and the
applicant states that they are now surplus to the requirements of the
site and cannot be retained in any future scheme, because of their
location, size and speciality of use.

The application is accompanied by an Environmental Impact Assessment,
which looks at the impact of the demolition on the environment.

Details of the application are available on the council's website using
UK Planning under reference number 11/0727. The plans 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 28 October 2011. Comments
should be sent to The application will
be considered by the council’s Planning Committee.
