Asparagus Field Housing Development


Page updated 26th June 2017

The latest application, for the approval of landscaping, was submitted to TDC on 10th May 2017 – R/TH/17/0676.

The parish council discussed the proposals for the reserved matters (landscaping) on 1st June 2017 and made the following comments.

Agreed the proposals but with an objection to the use of prickly shrubs in hedges etc. as they may damage children.

Also noted that the entrance gate & fencing into the Marjorie Chapman Meadow on the south side of Cliffsend Road will have to be moved back into the meadow due to the provision of the housing development on the North side of Cliffsend Road. This is a statutory requirement under footpath regulations.

Thanet District Council gave general approval for this development on 14th Feb 2017.

Fencing was put around the development area on 23rd Jan 2017.
