The County Council – as Local Minerals and Waste Planning Authority - confirms that, according to British Geological Survey safeguarding data, River Terrace deposits are present within the allocated site and are vulnerable to sterilisation. As set out in the adopted Kent Minerals and Waste Local Plan 2013-2030, Policy CSM 5: Land-won Mineral Safeguarding and Policy DM 7: Safeguarding Mineral Resources detail how minerals of economic importance will be safeguarded from being unnecessarily steril

This looks to be very sound; eating places with riverside views are always popular and if this is mixed use i.e. office space day and leisure activities such as theatre, cinema, bowling or roller or ice skating along with cafes, bars and restuarants for evening could provide both jobs and recreation.

CPRE welcomes this mixed use proposal on an urban brownfield site.
