        Temporary Alterations to Public Consultation

        Further to the increase in the emergency period for lockdown due to Covid-19, Thanet District Council are temporarily altering our public consultation of planning applications and related consent/notifications. The Council will now be carrying out the legal requirements for public consultation only, which will mean that site notices will not be posted on applications where it is not a statutory requirement of the General Procedure Order 2015 and related legislation. The Council serves notice on adjoining owners and occupiers for all planning applications by post, which meets the publicity requirements of the Order (in addition to publication of the notice in a local newspaper in particular cases). Site notices will still be posted for applications that are:

        • Major planning applications (Development of more than 10 dwellings, or more than 1000m² of floorspace or on a site larger than 0.5ha);
        • Accompanied by a Environmental Impact Assessment;
        • Departures for the adopted development plan;
        • For sites within or adjacent to a Conservation area;
        • For Listed building consent;
        • Proposals that affect a public right of way.

        The table below summarises the approach of the Council for different types of submissions.

        This approach will enable the Council to continue to determine submissions without resulting in significant delays to the determination of planning applications, whilst ensuring that public consultation continues in accordance with statutory requirements.

        The above will be applied to all applications/submissions held by the Council where a site notice has not been posted as of Thursday 30th April 2020 and will remain in place until 22nd May 2020, allowing decisions to be made in this period in accordance with the above provisions.
