New COVID-19 Street Wardens have been introduced in Thanet’s high streets and town centres this week (Monday 26 October). The COVID-19 Street Wardens will help to support a safe trading environment for local businesses and customers in the district.
Cllr Rick Everitt, Leader of Thanet District Council has written to Cllr Roger Gough, the Leader of Kent County Council on the matter of children in Thanet who receive free school meals:
Thanet District Council and Friends of Ellington Park (FOEP) are pleased to announce the award of the major contract to BJF Group, to build a new cafe, restored terrace, new playground and landscaping in Ellington Park.
The project to replace berth 4/5 at the Port of Ramsgate is to be delayed until early 2021. This is because the council as the planning authority has determined that an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is needed in relation to the replacement of the berth.
A new Test and Trace discretionary funding scheme to support residents in Thanet on low incomes, who don’t qualify for the mandatory support payments, is now available.
“This October council meeting completes one year of the current administration. The circumstances have probably been the most testing that Thanet District Council has faced, with the last seven months dominated by issues arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Last month local residents, community groups and businesses were given the chance to have their say on what will help Margate grow and potentially access up to £25m worth of investment as part of the governments £3.6bn Towns Fund initiative.
The opportunity for interested members of the public to comment on the feasibility study for Ramsgate Port and Harbour has been extended to Friday 18 December 2020.
Engagement matters Community engagement is at the heart of the Town Deal process. The Government wants to see that the Town Investment Plan has a vision and priorities that have been shaped by both the evidence base and the community.
