Royal Victoria Pavilion Ramsgate and Wetherspoons Update.

I would imagine that most of the readers of this blog know that The Royal Victoria Pavilion in Ramsgate is due to be turned into what is rumoured to be the largest pub in England by J D Wetherspoon.

Planning consent was granted on 13th April and has now appeared on the council’s website see https://planning.thanet.gov.uk/online-applications/files/261DE52F8B42CC792F670E7C29FAF245/pdf/F_TH_14_1170-DECISION_NOTICE-382145.pdf

I understand that the leasehold has now been transferred to J D Wetherspoon and that the keys have been handed over, there is an element of hearsay in this.

The first activity, which is happening on site today, is the installation of an alarm system and the proper securing of the building.

I would say that it is reasonable to call this “work starts on the Pav” but haven’t headlined it this way as like so many things in Thanet, the information leaks out.

Personally now that this is happening I am 100% behind it and hope the development is finished as soon as possible, I also hope that this will serve as a catalyst to get the other developments in this part of Ramsgate moving forward in some way that makes sense.

So wot’s it like inside, here are the links to the pictures I took of the inside


Having just finished work and read through this blog post checking the links it seems that once again the council’s wretched planning website has gone down. Not my fault and I will try to copy the approval document when it comes back. In the meantime here are the books that went out in my bookshop today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/chocolate-wars-in-bookshop.html   

As promised the decision notice click on it to big it

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.
