Juggernauts thundering along the Thanet Way, to and from an ever expanding China Gateway, marching across open fields, towards a creeping Westwood Cross, until it finally meets up in a continuous urban sprawl across the whole of Southern Thanet.
Is THIS the price we want to pay for getting Thanet back to work?
Or is there a better way? - An integrated transport and tourism plan. (ITTP)
ITTP can combine moderate development with a revitalised tourism scheme for the WHOLE of Thanet. This will attract new residents, with greater disposable income, to take up family houses, created by planning policies DM1 and DM2, benefiting from the new proximity of Thanet to London using HS1. The Turner Centre will be a focus for a renaissance in Thanet tourism, visiting the scenic delights of the whole island from Minnis Bay to CliffsEnd.
Yes, you can say it is scaremongering! Yes, you can say it will never happen!
But unless we get the document “Shaping our Future” amended, it is written into all our futures by 2026.
