Eurokent Plans for housing estate and shopping centre at Westwood Cross published.

The planning reference is OL/TH/11/0910

The TDC planning website is one of the most bizarre websites I have ever come across in as much as the web addresses of the pages on it change after a few hours so you can’t publish links to them. If you want to look at any of the applications you need to go to the site and enter the application reference in the search box, this link takes you to the site

Some of the pdf files are a bit on the large size so you may find them easier to deal with if you download them to your computer first.

Interestingly the results of the public consultations are published in the application -In council speak the consultation document in the planning application is called “Other-9215374”- (people’s actual responses are at the bottom in an appendix), summarised this seems to be: we asked people if they wanted it, they said no and now we intend to impose it on them.  

I will try to write something more about this if I get time to study the plans.    


  1. I quite like the optimism where the retail area is shown in Margate!! In their defence, I suppose it doesn't say "Currently trading retail"...

  2. Eurokent application for residential and commercial.

    China Gateway approved.


    I think not.

  3. Knowing how CGI operate, I would be surprised if they didn't try to flog off their investments and not actually build anything.... just like will happen in Dover....


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
