Brett's have recently applied to KCC for a Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Use or Development (CLOPUD)  for the erection of a sand and gravel washing plant in the Port of Ramsgate. The Ramsgate Society are very concerned about the detrimental impact the proposal could have on the nearby Pegwell SSSI.
There is considerable public concern about the way that granting a Certificate of Lawfulness under the General Development Order could circumvent the statutory protections on the adjoining designated areas and we are anxious to ensure that a full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)  is carried out before the application can be considered further.
We attach the statement from The Ramsgate Society which was recently sent to KCC by The Ramsgate Society Planning Committee in response to the public consultation on the application.

Another sculpture triumph for Theresa Smith. Her Crown was the glory of last years’ Festival. 

Now She has taken the words that circle the top of the lighthouse but are hardly noticed.
Not any more:

“A refuge from misery” in massive reflective aluminium, is a tidal beacon on the Harbour Arm.

Seen here from Destiny the Albion Gardens memorial.

Good Morning Britain are looking for a selection of local families and people to get involved with a Good Morning Britain special that they will be running on Friday June 24th about the EU referendum.

They are looking to speak to people and maybe find a family to speak to on the morning of June 24th and on the run up to the vote.

The show will be going on air at 6am and running until 9.30am on that day. They may also ask families to do some video diaries in the run up to the referendum. They would love to speak to a few generations from the same family.
