The only information about tonight’s meeting seems to be some tweets from the council’s communications team.
The agenda for the meeting is here http://tdc-mg-dmz.thanet.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=151&MId=2696&Ver=4
One of the items was extending the lease to 100 years, I think the council speak translates into this is what they intend to do.
The rumour is that Wetherspoons want to turn it into one of their pubs, the building is in a pretty dreadful state, the links below are to some pictures I too of the inside, sorry about the quality, it’s pretty dark in there as the windows were boarded up years ago.
As I guess you can see from the pictures the Pavillion is in a pretty dreadful state and needs considerable investment so it is likely that anyone making this investment would need security of tenure for long enough to raise the finance.
Another aspect is that the pavillion is subject to flooding by the sea during tidal surge storms, in 1953 it go a fair washing through by the sea, after the storm the local paper says that the sand has moved around it so that it appeared to be in the middle of the beach.
On the bright side it is behind the largest accumulation of sand, which does help to dissipate the waves, on the not so bright side there is a lot less sand than there was in 1953 because the council used it for the Port Ramsgate infill.
I do have reservations about the amount of bars the area can support, but frankly I can’t really think of another leisure use that would be likely to be viable. The building is listed, so it is likely to stay and the metal framework that holds the roof up doesn’t give an internal clear span big enough for a skating rink or swimming pool, uses that have been suggested.
