Thanet council has published a list of sites which have been put forward for allocation in the updated Thanet Draft Local Plan.
A fresh call for housing sites was made by the authority following the rejection of the proposal to take the Local Plan to publication stage at a meeting on January 18.
The vote, which led to the collapse of the UKIP administration, was prompted by a change of status for Manston from aviation-only to a mixed-use designation to include 2,500 homes. An amendment to defer for two years the mixed-use designation pending the resolution of the DCO process was not sufficient to persuade the majority of councillors.
There were also issues over housing numbers with a strong campaign to protect sites mounted by the Birchington Action Group Against TDC Local Plan members.
The council, then under UKIP administration, said the voting down of the local plan resulted in a requirement to identify additional locations for housing across the district in order to achieve required land supply.
Thanet council Cabinet members will meet to discuss a new draft local plan vote on July 2. The issue will go to the scrutiny panel on July 11, back to Cabinet on July 19 before a final decision from full council on July 26.
Three options are believed to be due to be put forward to councillors which will have amendments to the Manston designation to retain aviation only either temporarily or permanently.
Thanet’s Draft Local Plan –which runs until 2031 –sets out how much development is needed to support the future population and economy. Allocating land through the plan is designed to give the council greater control over where and what type of developments can take place.
The latest sites put forward for consideration include the 3,700 home plan for the Manston airport site and a large number of village proposals
The council has not yet made a decision as to whether any additional sites will need to be allocated, or if any of the newly submitted site are suitable for allocation
