Cabinet considers proposals for securing a new outdoor market in Ramsgate
On Thursday 16 June 2022, Thanet District Council’s Cabinet will consider proposals for securing a new operator for the Ramsgate outdoor market.
It will also consider removing street trading and hawking restrictions on the High Street, King Street and Queen Street.
If approved by Cabinet, the council would request tenders for the provision of market operator services for a weekly (subject to planning permission) or monthly outdoor market in the town centre. The tender opportunity would be openly marketed via the Kent Business Portal to attract the widest possible interest.
Two potential locations have been identified as suitable for a market: Ramsgate High Street and/or Westcliff Promenade Green. Other locations could also be considered.
Thanet District Council achieved successful prosecutions against six defendants at Margate, Sevenoaks and Hastings Magistrates Courts in September 2023.
A legal challenge against the development consent order (DCO) for Manston airport has been denied.
Thanet District Council is inviting members of the public to learn about the regeneration projects taking place at Walpole Bay.
