I don’t often put up the same thing up her as I put up on the press release site, but I think this council meeting is an important one, so here it is.
With the airport issue, the more I see of the issues related to the cpo the more certain I am becoming that tdc is just the wrong council to be considering this.
In the first instance being the planning authority for Manston immediately puts them at a disadvantage, as any planning application they turn down there, to the detriment of the site’s value, is likely to increase the current owners compensation claim.
Well here is the first really significant document that the council officers have produced about the cpo http://democracy.thanet.gov.uk/documents/s37716/Manston%20International%20Airport%20-%20CPO%20Indemnity%20Partner%20Process.html?CT=2 which seem to be saying a minimum time of 217 days from when the actually decide if it’s viable.The airport’s online auction has gone live at http://www.ppauctions.com/auction.php?id=121
I will add to this if I get time.
