Manston Green goes on show

More than 300 residents, business people and councillors took the time to give their views on plans which developers say will improve Thanet’s rail and road connectivity while creating a new community on the edge of Ramsgate.
  
The Manston Green proposals include the long-talked about Thanet Parkway station, a Park and Ride facility, improved public transport provision and the building of new roads to reduce congestion on Haine Road, alongside a phased residential development of 800 new homes with primary school and community facilities.

Kevin Ashman of Cogent Land LLP and Project Director for Manston Green, said: “There is much to be optimistic about Thanet’s economic future, but more could be done to improve journey times to and from London, reduce congestion on the A256 corridor and provide homes for the area’s growing workforce. We believe Manston Green offers a timely opportunity to help solve these long-term issues and support the economic growth of Thanet and East Kent.”

Manston Green is being advised by planning and development consultants Iceni Projects, urban masterplanners Paul Drew Design, and Maxim.
