News, Local history and Thanet issues from Michael's Bookshop in Ramsgate see www.michaelsbookshop.com I publish over 150 books about the history of this area click here to look at them.
Bloody hell, very unsafe by the looks of things (looks like a photo from WW2!).
it was unsafe before the fire,there was a lot of subsidence due to being built on an old petrol storage tank
So why was it given planning permission? I presume it was given planning permission?And were TDC in the process of telling the developers to make expensive reparations? I think we should be told.BTW Michael, you might like to know the thumbnail in my news feed reads 'Michael's Bookshop Blog deemed unsafe by officers from Thanet District Council'!
I will post some more pictures on my blog when the wife gets home I see on the way home last night they had made it safe down to first floor level.
Peter I find the council have a way with words this is the best I have ever had from them http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/tdc/the_member_portal_.htm9.44 Perhaps they forgot to empty it.Richard thanks for the accolade, I will treasure it.Don look forward to the picts.
Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
