Ramsgate Seafront

Ramsgate was and still is a wonderful place to live blighted by a bomb site, once Pleasurama, now a building site which has changed little in the last 15 years.

From the Marina swimming pool, now a car park, through Pleasurama, above, past the Royal Pavilion, closed since 2008, to The Royal Port the whole area looks like it got abandoned back in the 1990's.

And the good folks have had enough.

Some trace the demise back when Ramsgate became just part of Thanet district Council and this has been heightened by the perception that TDC is incompetent, that may well be true however what is more certain the people of Ramsgate feel that money has been spent in Margate to the detriment of this part of the island.

Things are changing slowly (IMHO too slowly) however Ramsgate Town Council needs to do more.

Some of the changes are, work is starting on Albion House once the Mayor's Parlour and soon to be a boutique hotel. Project Motorhouse will be refurbishing the old Westcliff motor museum, Finally we are getting both a Neighbourhood plan and a new Ramsgate Town Team.
