TDC seem to have issued a press release about Pleasurama, I
delayed putting this post up because although this is what it says on their
website they have, they haven’t sent it to me for publication like their other
press release and I though it may have got delayed somewhere in TDCIT.
Frankly I am surprised that now the document has gone into
the public domain we haven’t had any sort of explanation from any of the then
cabinet members, as to why they decided to do what they did.
Also we have the bizarre email purported to have been sent
by Cardy Construction, (the contractor who may or may not be building the Royal
Sands but has certainly added a lot of concrete posts to the site,) to the
editor of Thanet Watch.

Subject: Re: cardy healthcare ltd
This chap runs a local blog in Thanet, and I suspect without
any doubt his interest in Cardy is fuelled solely by agitators and spoilers who
are against the Royal Sands site.
I spoke with this chap about Two months ago, and at that time it was to put him straight
regarding a story he was going to write then about Cardy Construction Ltd being
struck off at Companies House....my call to him prevented a negative and

Cardy Healthcare is separate to Cardy Construction Ltd and

within the Healthcare Sector, including healthcentres, medical centres, GP
Surgeries, Pharmacies and Hospitals both in the Private Sector and the NHS.
This has been a speculative 5 year plan , and our initial
investment in this process has proved to have been very successful and we have
a secured and confirmed order book of approaching £10million pounds of quality
and profitable work.
Let me know your thoughts, I do not intend speaking with him
Ironically a took a call from the Chief Exec of TDC
yesterday at 4pm. And he asked if he and I could have an "off line"
chat re Royal Sands. He does not want lawyers or others involved and felt that
me/Cardy and him were the two people in this project that could influence
success for the project . Not sure why I have been singled out, but I guess if
I can finally pull this one off, I would be Billy Golden Balls.
I am sure it will end up being more hot air. Seeing him at
8.30 this morning. Will update you.
I emailed the MD of Cardy Construction yesterday asking him
for some sort of comment, but haven’t had a reply yet, which is strange as he
is usually pretty good on the replying front.
What we locals are supposed to make of The Royal Sands now I
just don’t know.
The Royal sands website has a FAQ page which says:
“When will the first apartments be ready for occupation?
We are expecting the first apartments to be ready in autumn
