Westgate-on-Sea Town Council
Westgate-on-Sea Town Council has embarked on preparing a Neighbourhood Plan for the town.
A Neighbourhood Plan is a set of planning policies created from residents feedback on how they want to see their town or parish developed. Once the Plan has been put together residents will be asked to vote as to whether they agree or not in a local referendum. If the Plan is agreed then the Local Planning Authority, in this case Thanet District Council, will consider Westgate's Plan alongside the Local Plan when making planning decisions.
The Story So Far.......
The Town Council held a public meeting in the Pavilion on Saturday 4th March where residents shared their views on future development for Westgate. Lots of people registered their interest in finding out more about the Neighbourhood Plan.

The next meeting is on Wednesday 21st June in the Christ Church Hall. This meeting will be a workshop to begin work on the different areas that need to be covered by the plan. We are looking for residents to come along and take part in this workshop so please come along and join in.
The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has collected the views of residents, businesses and visitors to the town through a survey. The results of the survey are being analysed and will be published in due course.
The winners of the prizes will be announced soon!
