Leader of TDC, Sandy Ezekiel commented;
"This is about the two Conservative Councils working together to get results. Results for Thanet people, and results for business. There’s not a penny of Westminster money going into this. "
North Thanet's MP, Roger Gale MP added:
"Thanet District and Kent County are doing their level best to get infrastructure in place before development takes place. The task would have been a whole lot easier, though, if the last Labour Council which likes to claim credit for Westwood Cross had paid just a little attention to roads and railways when agreeing the outline plans. Or if the last Labour Transport Minister, who happens to be the MP for South Thanet at present, had looked to the interests of the area that he was elected to represent and found a little more money for Kent and Thanet."
