Three days to go in RSP Manston Consultation – residents urged to submit their feedback

Published on July  17th, 2017

There are only three days to go in the statutory consultation on our plans to reopen Manston Airport. RiverOak Strategic Partners urges anyone who has not yet responded, and has views they would like to send us about our proposals, to submit a consultation feedback form – either online, by email or by post –so that we can report, to the Planning Inspectorate, on the views of the widest section of the regional community as possible and how we intend to address them.

RiverOak Strategic Partners is proposing to reopen Manston Airport as a vibrant air freight hub with associated business aviation and passenger services, creating almost 30,000 jobs by the airport’s 20th year of operation. Since Monday 12 June were have been consulting on our proposals before submitting an application for a Development Consent Order to the Planning Inspectorate. This consultation will fulfil a number of requirements set out in the Planning Act 2008, allowing us to refine our proposals before submitting our application.

The consultation closes at 11.59pm this Sunday, 23 July. To date, there have been more than 1,200 feedback forms submitted and 1,900 people attended consultation events held across Thanet during June and early July.

Local residents can still submit their feedback on the plans as follows:

  • by post: Feedback Forms and any other consultation responses can be posted to PO Box 3297, Bristol, BS1 9LL – please note the final mailing date is today (Friday), by first class post;
