Support this and hope the developments planned for Kingsnorth take this fully into consideration as roads here are already busy and nearing capacity.

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.

Local Plan to 2030 - Publication Draft TOPIC POLICIES SECTION A - HOUSING Houses of Multiple Occupation Content

  • Comment ID: ALP/1735
  • Status: Accepted
I agree with your statement and think more should be done to improve the standards of housing provided; generally HMO housing is not the best available and can lead to problems for residents. I understand affordability is the main driver here but also profit for the property owner. Where possible small self-contained units would be preferable to rooms with shared facilities.

Agree I am all for a greater use of renewable energy; homes could be built to higher standards to both conserve energy and produce energy with the technology which is now available and will be available as we approach 2030.

Local Plan to 2030 - Publication Draft STRATEGIC POLICIES Promoting High Quality Design Content

  • Comment ID: ALP/1668
  • Status: Accepted
Quality of design and designs that fit in with the existing housing is appreciated and helps to create a better place to live. Likewise sustainability should be a priority and new housing which is both energy efficient and also energy productive should be considered; solar tiles, instead of ugly solar panels, can be built into the design along with water harvesters to make use of an ever valuable resource.

A further comment to my previous one: I think communal a laundry room and garden/s would be acceptable but not kitchen or bathrooms as even the smallest unit can house a kitchenette and wash facilities. If the bathroom facilities need to be communal then several lockable shower room facilities should be provided with WC's.

Local Plan to 2030 - Publication Draft TOPIC POLICIES SECTION C - TRANSPORT Pedestrians Content

  • Comment ID: ALP/1759

Planning for pedestrians is vital to both encourage walking as a leisure activity and also as a way to get to a destination i.e. local shops, town centre or schools. The routes need to be well planned and link, to make this possible.

Local Plan to 2030 - Publication Draft TOPIC POLICIES SECTION C - TRANSPORT Public Parking Facilities Serving The Town Centre Content

  • Comment ID: ALP/1762
  • Status: Accepted
Support the proposal to introduce park and ride schemes as this can have a huge impact on the traffic bottlenecks going into Ashford and the surrounding areas. If well planned the park and ride schemes should help to ease traffic congestion and, one would hope, the levels of air pollution too!

Retaining and encouraging biodiversity is vital; the proposed green corridors should help. But where developments are planned the loss of habitats, should be considered especially as we have some rare species living in the neighbourhood. Likewise, historical sites should also be looked at carefully and preserved where possible as once they are lost they are lost for good!

This is sound; but could new developments be built with water harvesting apparatus as standard? This would be green and would save the new owners money on their water bills as well as saving use of a vital raw material. Maybe developers could promote this as a selling point!
