Stone Hill Park response to submission of DCO application

Stone Hill Park has today released a statement in response to the submission by RiverOak Strategic Partners (RSP) of a Development Consent Order (DCO) regarding the former Manston Airport site.

Trevor Cartner, Director of Stone Hill Park Ltd, said: “We are pleased that RiverOak Strategic Partners (RSP) has finally submitted their Development Consent Order (DCO) application, which will now be considered by the Planning Inspectorate. This will deal with the issue once and for all.

“Stone Hill Park Ltd (SHPL) will contest the DCO application and any subsequent hearing rigorously. We are absolutely convinced that we will win, as the DCO proposition being advanced by RSP is built on a foundation of sand.

“The quicker the DCO process is dealt with, the quicker Stone Hill Park will help to kickstart the economy of Thanet as a whole.

“We will submit our revised outline planning application to Thanet District Council by the end of May.”
