Neighbourhood Plan

Westgate-on-Sea Town Council has embarked on preparing a Neighbourhood Plan for the town.

A Neighbourhood Plan is a set of planning policies created from residents feedback on how they want to see their town or parish developed.  Once the Plan has been put together residents will be asked to vote as to whether they agree or not in a local referendum.  If the Plan is agreed then the Local Planning Authority, in this case Thanet District Council, will consider Westgate's Plan alongside the Local Plan when making planning decisions.


The Story So Far.......

The Town Council held a public meeting in the Pavilion on Saturday 4th March where residents shared their views on future development for Westgate.  Lots of people registered their interest in finding out more about the Neighbourhood Plan.  If you would like to be added to the distribution list for more information please do so by completing the contact form.  Click on 'Contact' above, enter your details and we will add you to our list of email updates.

There was a meeting on Wednesday 21st June 2019 in the Christ Church Hall. This meeting was a workshop to begin work on the different areas that need to be covered by the plan.  We are pleased that residents came along and took part in this workshop.

The pre-submission consultation and publicity process will commence soon - please watch this space.


The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has collected the views of residents, businesses and visitors to the town through a survey.  The results of the survey have been analysed and fed into the process.
