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.
Grants for lift restoration, improved disabled beach access and tidal pool repairs are on the cards for Thanet’s towns, following an allocation of funds received from Southern Water.
Earlier this year, a defendant was found guilty of fly-tipping bagged waste and household goods in Chatham Passage, Ramsgate.
In December 2022, the Government published some proposed amendments to the National Planning Policy Framework and offered an open consultation on the proposed updates.
