Iíve just been surfing the web looking for and reading responses to the rsp DCO consultation, as the deadline for submission has now passed. What I havenít been able to find is any submissions supporting the DCO. I assume this is down to my ITC skills and not because there arenít any, so where are they?

Roger Dann I filled in and returned their form supporting the proposal. Was told that upon receipt of this form I would get an email confirming same. Returned it at least 2 weeks prior to deadline. Was it all a scam to placate those supporting the opening of Manston and they will say that these forms were received too late.

Robo King received an e-mail confirming receipt within 24 hours. If you don't give an e-mail address everything has to be carried out manually and then proceed through snail mail (Royal Mail)

Michael Child With my response, as the rsp website didnt work properly and they had pretty much confirmed that they couldn't fix it by Friday I decided to send it by email and cc it to pins, my take being poor ITC skills could mean it got lost. Dear Mr Child,

Thank...See More

Mark Crutchlow Are you looking at the PINS site? I doubt that any official responses from the consultations have been released yet. The PINS site was there to answer queries on the DCO process but appears to be a whingefest for those opposing the plans to vent their spleens ;-)

Michael Child Looked everywhere obvious and only found objections to the DCO the most comprehensive being NNF, I am aiming to do a post about the main arguments for and against later in the week as I think there is a fair amount of interest in people's views on the project. I had expected to find some here and assumed a comprehensive response from SMA would be published in the docs here.

Mark Crutchlow Try looking on Herne Bay Chatter another town supposedly "blighted" by Manston a discussion took place regarding a NNF leaflet that was delivered to every door. It didn't quite go the way the original poster had wanted. It seems that those opposing the airport occupy a very small circle of friends.

Mark Crutchlow Support for the airport is widespread. Just looking at NNF is not going to uncover those with a secret yearning for cargo hubs. Spread you net and look into local groups, normally a Manston thread pops up, there you can gain a more rounded opinion.

Michael Child I will take your web surfing advice onboard but honestly a couple of links to supporting responses would help with writing the post just now

Mark Crutchlow Try Harry Boltons "Why Not Manston" site. It might balance up your NNF visit. Or just go to SMAa ?

Michael Child I think perhaps you have misunderstood where I am coming from, this is part of writing a local weblog which gets about 1,000 reads a day.

So obviously I am expected to write something about how the consultation process went, how the local groups respo...See More

Mark Crutchlow Perhaps you will just have to wait and see Michael ? many of us have sent in personal submissions and I'm sure other organisations have to, I don't see at this stage the need for it to turn into a willy measuring contest.
We will await the opening of the envelopes and the tally up and hopefully white smoke for the airport and RSP. ;-)

David Jasper How many local people have been killed who live near Heathrow and Gatwick by air pollution you seem to be privy to that info as you keep harping on about it , you keep going round in circles but never mention the real long term jobs the airport would create. Tell me now do you want houses with no jobs or real jobs at Manston airport

Michael Child David I am privy to the information because I read it in rspís PEIR document, I take ďconcentrations and increased mortality and morbidity ratesĒ to mean kills people read it yourself here is the reference, 6.4.35 table 6.7, download the PEIR document from the rsp (Riveroak Strategic Partners) website and then I guess you could ask them.

David Jasper I asked you if you wanted houses with no jobs or or real jobs for local people when the airport reopens if you say houses you are going against the wishes of 90% of the people of Thanet and the south east i do not live in Thanet but i care more about what happens to the airport than you and all your little friends put together

Pauline Robinson Well said David it's jobs that are needed not houses. What's the good of houses if there's no jobs get real people Manston has been there most probably longer than some of the residents
