Here is the gist of the first one Aggregate Import by vessel and cleaning.
Cleaning of port dredging material. Use of material to make concrete blocks for construction for despatch by road and vessel. Waste Wood Importation by road for processing for despatch by vessel.
The rumour is that this plan has been put together by two ex TDC planning officers, so no doubt it will go sailing through all the hoops at TDC.
My assumption here is slag heaps and outfall pipe, noise, dust and bathing water pollution.
I have no doubt that this will involve a Save Our Port campaign while carefully omitting the information that the council will be supporting saving a port that you can’t get a passenger ferry from.
Now my take is that Ramsgate is doing quite nicely without council help, the shopping centre is reviving, mainly because it is adjacent to an open air car park that shoppers feel comfortable about parking in. The café culture is expanding nicely too.

Obviously being in business myself I can read a balance sheet up to a point and at first glance suggests that RiverOak just didn’t have the money in place. The most they seemed to have which included the promise of a bank loan was less than £2m.
