Thanet District Council CPO Discussion

Our latest petition, for a compulsory purchase to be performed on Manston Airport by Thanet District Council has now closed. We thank everyone who signed our petition.

The petition was presented to Thanet District Council leader Iris Johnston on Thursday 26th June. The results of the petition are now available to view here.


Don’t forget to attend the Thanet District Council meeting next Thursday. The Labour party will put forward their position as a party. The CPO petition will also be officially presented, and discussed by the full council council. It can then be referred, by a vote, to the cabinet of the council – as an compulsory purchase order is a cabinet function.

Thanet District Council are looking into providing extra viewing space for members of the public.

The meeting starts at 7pm on Thursday 10th July at the Council Offices, Cecil Street, Margate. The petition is item 5a on the agenda, the first main item of the meeting.
