Some of the amendments have been made following comments made about the original application.
Some of the amendments are
The Thanet Parkway Station will no longer be on the Manston Green site.
The "Public Transport Interchange, including local parking / Discovery Park parking on a Park & Ride area" has also disappeared.
KCC are progressing the Parkway project themselves. (See the Parkway Station page on this website).
The implementation for the project is now over 6 years (phases), not 7, with construction assumed to be starting in 2016.
The Manston Road / Haine Road junction improvements will take place in phase 4 (2019).
The New Haine Road dual carriageway will be started in phase 5 (2020).
They are now assuming that Manston Airport will no longer function as an airport.
The new connecting road into Manston airport from the promised new dual carriegeway New Haine Road has disappeared.
They state that that in Phase 1 "..open water should now be possible without airport activity".
