        Ramsgate to benefit from Future High Streets Fund

        Commenting on the Government announcement that an additional 50 towns will benefit from the £1 billion Future High Streets Fund Cllr Reece Pugh, Thanet District Council’s Cabinet Member for Corporate Governance and Coastal Development said:

        “We welcome the announcement from the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and are delighted that Ramsgate is one of the 50 successful towns to be invited to put our application forward into the next phase of assessment of the Future High Streets fund. We want to develop a thriving and sustainable high street and having up to £150,000 to work up detailed project proposals, to be ready to bid for capital funds, is another step closer to achieving that goal.

        “We would like to thank the Coastal Community Team, Ramsgate Town Team, Ramsgate Society and Ramsgate Town Council who share our positive vision for the area and helped shape the expression of interest for Ramsgate. This is a great opportunity to unlock the town’s potential for investment, transform the high street and support job creation.”
