leisure facilities in Ramsgate
Due to a considerable correspondence with members of Thanet District council relating the future use of what was previously the main leisure site in Ramsgate I have felt it necessary to publish it here.
I have tried to put the most recent correspondence at the top of each page.
Obviously most of this was not intended for publication in this way but so many people want to know what is going on.
The pictures are intended to make it fun.
You may be aware of various initiatives that relate to leisure facilities in Ramsgate in the past, these include:
The demolition of the marina swimming pool;
The demolition of the adjacent Victorian theater;
The removal of the majority of the beach for port building materials;
The rejection of the sea life center,
The closing of the royal Victoria pavilion sun deck,
The efforts to provide the world war 2 museum in the tunnel.
The concreting over of most of the parking on the sea front
The closing of the model village
The removal of the tourist information center to where tourists are unlikely to find it
The removal of all the beach huts.
The result is that the main seafront area that was the main leisure area of the town has somehow become a leisure free zone and although a large amount of what were leisure areas have tuned into car parks the amount of available parking on the seafront has now decreased.
The remaining leisure facilities in the town and seafront area are mostly bars and restaurants some of the public buildings in the area are disused or partly disused, like the customs house and the pavilion.
With the situation relating to Dreamland and the rejection of plans for the muti-screen cinema I have tried to find out the situation relating to leisure facilities in Thanet from various members of the council.
