Engaging with our local communities to help form ideas, gather views and test out ideas is important.
Identified below are some of our previous engagement activities undertaken to gather people’s views on specific works.
Town Investment Plan Engagement Activities
In 2021 we asked local people to join the conversation about the future of Ramgsate.
Over 800 people completed our Ramsgate Future questionnaires and many attended our community drop in events. For those unable to make it but are interested to see what was discussed you can view the exhibition boards here.
With this information the Engagement Summary has been developed, which has been used to inform our Ramsgate Future Investment Plan. If you’d like to be kept up to date about the Ramsgate Future Investment Plan please join our mailing list.
Highways Improvement Consultation
In October and November 2021, we asked people their views on our proposed highways improvement scheme for the harbour area, funded by the Future High Street Funds.
Over 200 members of the public got involved in the Future High Street Fund’s Ramsgate highways improvement scheme consultation. Comments were made either by completing an online survey, attending a drop-in session, or by emailing the project team.
Over 81% of people who took part agreed or strongly agreed with the proposed scheme. Over 75% agreed or strongly agreed that the scheme will enhance the environment, create a more inviting character for the harbour area, and reduce speed limits.
