The reaction on social media to the upcoming vote on the Local Plan has mostly been of one of strong opposition to the plan as it currently exists.

The local plan has been described as deeply flawed. Chris Wells faces a rebellion from UKIP councillors which threatens to topple his leadership and possibly UKIP control of the council.

Manston, a bone of contention

The biggest bone of contention is the removal of aviation only use from the airport. Many enthusiastic UKIP councillors joined the party in defence of the airport. As such, this policy shift has been contentious.

Very little support

I have been able to find almost no support expressed for the Local Plan. It is deeply unpopular.

One thing is for sure. The vote will determine far more than just the local plan. It may also determine the future leadership of the council.
