Respond to the local plan TODAY!

YOU are invited to comment on the draft local plan. If you want to keep the Manston Airport for aviation use please email:!

You can also CC other important decision makers, including:


Your response should insist that:

  • All 700+ acres of the Manston site to remain for aviation use only.
  • No mixed development or housing, even on the Northern Grassland.
  • No renaming or rezoning of the area as a general opportunity site, or anything else that could jeopardise the airport’s future as an aviation site.

We have also arranged a public meeting regarding the emerging Thanet Local Plan. This will be a chance for you, our supporters, to come and provide views to members of the planning department of Thanet District Council regarding the draft local plan – particularly in regard to Manston Airport. Planning officers from TDC will give a presentation followed by a Q & A session, and then you will have a chance to make your comments about the local plan.

It will be held on Thursday 15th January and all supporters of Manston Airport are welcome. It will begin at 19:00 at the Northwood Club, 55 Northwood Road, Ramsgate CT12 6RS. There will be plenty of parking and a bus stop is nearby.

Together, we will say YES to aviation for Thanet and NO to another mixed use development. YOU can make the difference TODAY.
