All About Ramsgate and Broadstairs 1864 and a minor Manston DCO update

Another old Ramsgate guide book featured today 

Here is the coloured frontispiece by W. McConnell

And here some pages for you to read

On to improbable Manston related stuff, I suppose like many Manston Airport related issues the draft consultation document makes sense to someone, not me however so I have emailed The Department for Transport  

 RiverOak’s Manston Airport proposals

Hi with reference to the Manston DCO pre application https://infrastructure.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/projects/south-east/manston-airport a draft consultation document has appeared on the Support Manston Airport website at http://www.supportmanstonairport.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/RSP-Draft-Statement-of-Community-Consultation-February-2017.pdf I am uncertain whether this website is partly or wholly run and or financed by the applicant.

I can’t find this document the National Infrastructure Planning website or either of the applicant’s previous websites http://www.riveroakinvestments.co.uk/ or http://www.riveroakic.com/

It appears that the applicant has now changed from an American company RiverOak Investment Corp., LLC One Atlantic Street, Suite 703 Stamford, CT 06901 U.S.A. to a UK company RiverOak Strategic Partners, 50 Broadway Westminster, London, United Kingdom, SW1H 0BL which doesn’t appear to have a website. Can you kindly confirm that this is correct.

I am assuming that as this draft consultation document has appeared in the public domain that this part of the process of determining the scope of the consultation and that eventually a formal consultation document will appear.

I am concerned that the scope of the proposed formal consultation is too narrow particularly with respect to the area within which residential and business addresses will be sent notification of the consultation by post.

I assumed that this type of notification would be sent to all those addresses under the low flying airport approach and takeoff flight path within the previously identified aircraft noise envelope.

Could you kindly clarify these issues and tell me how or if I can communicate input relating to the scope of the consultation based on having read the draft document.    

Best regards Michael

Due to the nature of Clown Computing this email has been sent to you from some sort of fruit, it may make you more comfortable to know the following:- If it makes sense, it was sent by my PineApple Device, which has an ordinary keyboard. If it contains random wrong words, it was sent by my RaspBerry Device, which has predictive text and a small screen that I can’t always see properly. If it makes no sense whatsoever, it was sent by my new BaNana Device, with which I develop the persona of a chimpanzee and hit keys randomly hoping it will produce the works of Shakespeare, or at least something coherent.

  1. So who is running the DCO now? The directors of RSP from a Swiss investment bank?


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.
