Ian Driver Green Party PPC Thanet South Statement on Sale of Manston Airport

Thanet South  Green Party Parliamentary Candidate Ian Driver said that  “ any industrial, commercial and residential  development on or around the Manston Airport  site must comply with the highest environmental standards. The new owners of the site must ensure that micro generation,  water re-use and insulation technologies are deployed in any  developments and that any jobs created are long term sustainable and pay living wages. The new owners should also return  some of  their land to agricultural use and set aside land for  nature areas and community allotments for residents. If properly managed the development of the Manston/ Thanet Central Island area could be good for the environment and good for the economy and jobs. Thanet Green Party and I will not spare our efforts in ensuring that planning applications from the owner are  throughly scrutinised, of the highest standard  and that our environment is protected"
