A few thoughts on Ramsgate’s cliff safety, infrastructure and a morning walk.

Sorry about the length of the previous post I have now managed to publish most of it on a separate webpage, the mouse on my laptop went wrong last night so I didn’t do it then.

My concerns about the cliff problems and allowing heavy vehicles near the cliff edge where the condition of the cliff is suspect, seems to be falling mostly on deaf ears at the council, so I have tried another approach which is to contact the head offices of both the civil engineering consultants that the council use and the contractor that did the £1m repair to the cliff façade.

They are both large and reputable firms and I have some hope that one of them will take some sort of action, most particularly imposing temporary weight limits.

I have got most response from telephoning the engineers involved, at the moment they seem strangely reluctant to put anything in writing although there is a lot of concern expressed on the telephone.

I will probably ramble on as the day continues.

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.
