Gypsy and Traveller Unit - A total of eighteen sites are proposed across the district, which would provide a total of 90 pitches, with 50 additional pitches created. The policy states that sites should be located close to services and facilities, with access to public transport, but a number of these sites do not meet these criteria, being relatively remote.

Heritage and Conservation - 

The following initial archaeological appraisal of options has been undertaken primarily from readily available resources held by the Kent County Council
Historic Environment Record. It is not a detailed appraisal but merely provides a broad initial view on the sensitivity of the archaeological resource and the
way in which this should be approached for each of the options. The sensitivity of particular sites may change following more detailed appraisal and in light
of new information. The process of assessment will be reviewed and refined as the Local Development Framework process continues. A crude 5 point scale
has been used to rank the options with regard to archaeology. This is:
Scale
1 Development of this site (or part of) should be avoided
2 Pre-determination assessment should be carried out to clarify whether development of any part of the site is possible.

3 Significant archaeology could be dealt with through suitable conditions on a planning approval.
4 Low level archaeology anticipated which could be dealt with through suitable conditions on a planning approval.
5 No known archaeological potential on the site or part of it.
Note that for each described site several ‘Scales’ may be noted reflecting the varying potential across the site. For consideration of the site as a whole the
lowest numerical ‘Scale’, i.e. that with the highest archaeological sensitivity, should be used.
