Ramsgate Town Council to recommend that TDC turn down slipways development

I have just phoned the town council and received confirmation that the town council turned down the development on heritage grounds.

The basis of their objection goes something like this: While they concede that the buildings design is excellent, they feel that an ultramodern building is not suitable for the site between the listed Clock House and Royal Victoria Pavilion.

Please correct me if I am wrong here as I didn’t go to the meeting.

  2. Pity...I thought an ultra modern building in that setting would help to accentuate the classical lines of the Clock house, perhaps even draw the eye away from the bunker like toilet block beside the Pavillion.

  3. Sorry to say Pat I thought it was an ill conceived ugly design, I put my thoughts about it in my comments to TDC planning see http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop1010/id7.htm

  4. Yes, ok the slipways are a bit of an eysore, but Ramsgate is a WORKING HARBOUR afterall. These sights come with working harbours and in my view, the slipways we have are actually quite interesting. I don't know of any like them that you can get so upclose to. I personally feel TDC should be looking after the buildings an develpments we already have, before allowing anything new to go ahead.

  5. do you think all that glass on the new building would be triple glazed to keep the noise of the impending night 747 flights out?

  10. The only airline to use 747s at Manston is Cargolux, who use new 747-400 series and are taking delivery of brand new 747-8, no dodginess there!
