New Plans for Ramsgate Slipways


This is a preview of the new plans that are being submitted to the council today, I can’t form a detailed appraisal of the project until the plans apper on the council’s planning website.

My understanding is that the intention is for slipways 2, 3 and 4 to go with slipway no 1 being retained, the new building shown above to house a restaurant.

I will add to this one later today.  


Sorry about the delay completing this post, as I said I can’t really say much until the plans are available for inspection on the council’s website.

Presumably like the previous application there will be two sets, one for some demolition on the site and one for the development above, the previous demolition plans were to demolish to the extent that slipways 2, 3 and 4 were rendered unusable, these were rejected, so I am assuming the new demolition plans will be different.

Obviously the drawing above looks in keeping and attractive, but the key to the whole business is what slipway provision the harbour needs to be a viable harbour and how this development effects that provision.

  2. Whatever building is proposed, it is on the WRONG site.

    There are many vacant sites around Ramsgate.

    SO SAVE OUR SLIPWAYS.

  3. Save our slipways for what exactly? They are an eyesore and simply not commercially viable.... a larger hoist over by the Western Arm would be a more viable alternative.

  4. I like the new proposed design.

    Could be convinced after seeing the plans that this would be a good use of slips, and blend in with existing harbour buildings.

  7. A financial shot in the arm for a development that is not wanted or required. Its a pity that the develop at any cost friends do not investigate much further than the front of their nose and inflated egos.

  8. Having now seen the detailed layout plans and planning statements, I think this could be a good compromise for the site.

    The development seeks to protect the slipways whilst providing a better financial basis for the future prosperity of the site.

    The scale of the buildings is more sympathetic to the surrounding listed structures.

    Although,personally I have reservations about "mock" industrial buildings I think it maybe the only answer in this situation.

    I think Ramsgate should give this scheme SERIOUS consideration.
