Broadstairs & St. Peter's Neighbourhood Plan

Broadstairs & St. Peter’s are the first Neighbourhood Area in the Thanet District to have a Neighbourhood Plan. It was produced by a Neighbourhood Plan Sub-Committee, which includes Broadstairs & St. Peter’s Town Councillors and members of the public.

Following a referendum held by Thanet District Council on May 6 2021 local people voted overwhelmingly in favour of supporting the neighbourhood development plan for the whole of the neighbourhood area. The plan was formally made as part of the Thanet District Local Plan on 3rd June 2021
