Westgate-on-Sea Town Council
Local Plan Consultation
The Local Plan sets out policies and proposals that will be used to guide decisions and investment on development and regeneration. It will help make sure that the district is developed in the right way.
The plan sets out how and where homes, jobs, community facilities, shops and infrastructure will be delivered and the type of places and environments we want to create. It also identifies land to be protected from development, such as open space.
The new Local Plan will cover the district right up to 2031.
The Local Plan needs to be based on adequate, up-to-date and relevant evidence about the economic, social and environmental characteristics and prospects of Thanet. The evidence we have collected, and will continue to collect includes specific studies and a variety of statistical and other information.
You can give your views on Thanet District Council's draft Local Plan on their website.
The consultation closes on 17th March and the town council is encouraging residents to feedback their comments on the housing development planned for Westgate in the new plan. Below is a link to the draft submission that the town council is submitting. If you have any comments or feedback to add to this draft please contact the town clerk.
