Dear Thanet District Council,
Please consider this a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Since 2013, Thanet District Council has been supported by Ove Arup & Partners (Arup) in undertaking a Sustainability Appraisal of the Thanet Local Plan. The purpose of this appraisal was to consider the location and viability of a new settlement in Thanet district to "address housing demand".
Please provide all electronic communications (which do not require the retrieval of filed paper archives) between Thanet District Council and Ove Arup & Partners in the financial year 2013/14. I am particularly interested in communications which relate to Manston Airport, its owners, future purchase or future closure.
Thank you for your email.
We have received your request for information and we will acknowledge
formally with a reference number shortly.
Information Governance and Equalities team.
