The hybrid planning application CA//14/02339: Estuary View Business Park plots and land next to Chaucer Business Park – Developer George Wilson Developments and Kimberley Developments.
This so called ‘hybrid’ planning application is for various additional medical/care facilities at Estuary View, with access via the existing roundabout on the Old Thanet Way, and a new retail park on a separate site to the east (on the Long Reach side) using a new junction on the Old Thanet Way.
The Council has now submitted the draft Local Plan to the Planning Inspectorate to be examined by an independent Inspector. Copies of evidence base reports and representations have also been submitted to the Inspectorate.
These are the views of the Whitstable Society on what is needed in the new committee system. 24/9/14
The spectrum of decisions from very local to District
The new system and consideration of it needs to recognise and explicitly deal with the fact that decisions vary from:
1) those of consequence to one or a small group of people or a small area which can be equitably and efficiently dealt with by very local consultation without even the need to go near a committee.
Please note that on Friday 12th September there will be a public meeting about the future of Whitstable Museum at St Alphege Infant School, Oxford Street, starting at 7pm.
The council recently advertised, in the local press and on the council’s web-site, some public information evenings on the Local Plan, around the district. They have reminded us of the dates and locations of the next events.
