On October 10th we held a walk-in event at the Custom House to share our plans for 2020 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Ramsgate Town conservation area.
To celebrate this the Ramsgate Society is planning to plant 50 trees within the conservation area for future generations to enjoy. We will be planting the trees during National Tree Week on Saturday 28th November - if social distancing rules allow.
Many of our members will recall that the Society Committee carried out an online survey of our members to inform their response to the TDC Public Consultation on the WSP Feasibility Study on the Future of the Port and Harbour.The deadline for submissions was 2nd October and following an analysis of Members responses, the Society submitted its response on 23rd September. Our full submission is below.
Ramsgate Sea Front Shelters August 2019
In May 2011 The Ramsgate Society took on the job of renovating fourteen Victorian Sea Front Shelters that had fallen into disrepair. The Society raised around £540,000 to undertake the work with grants from The Heritage Lottery Fund, The Sainsbury Foundation and other grant making bodies. As part of the scheme Thanet District Council granted a lease to the Society with an obligation to maintain the shelters in good condition.
Please find below a copy of the two final submissions to the Examining Authority from The Ramsgate Society.
