A public meeting is being held in Ramsgate tonight (September 7) by campaigners against cargo hub plans and possible night flights at Manston.
Hosted by the No Night Flights group the aim is to discuss the Development Consent Order application submitted by Riveroak Strategic Partners (RSP) and approved for pre-submission by the Planning Inspectorate.
Registration is now open for people who want to comment on the DCO which seeks development consent and compulsory acquisition powers over the land. It is the means of obtaining permission for developments categorised as Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIP). This includes energy, transport, water and waste projects.
RSP want to create an international cargo hub at the site. Plans submitted to Thanet council by site owners Stone Hill Park are for housing, business and infrastructure on the land.
The NNF meeting will discuss the DCO process and how people can submit their views.
The meeting takes place at 7pm at the Chatham House site of Chatham and Clarendon Grammar School. It is open to all members of the public.
