Manston Airport

Received 03 September 2018
From Angela O


As a long-term resident of Thanet, I am concerned about the high levels of unemployment and the lack of opportunity for our young people, who are leaving the island in droves. An airport plus ancilliary services will offer the opportunities for our young people to stay in the place they were born and raised and support their own families.

The alternative, which is the building of what is, effectively, a whole new town at the airport site would seriously compromise an infrastructure which is already under a great deal of pressure.

Quite simply, I want prosperity and dignity for our Island and it's people again...

Thank you
