Update on the Winter Gardens
At a council meeting on Thursday 14 July, it was agreed that a petition presented to Councillors calling for a public meeting about the Winter Gardens, is referred to Cabinet for discussion.
It was announced in August 2021 that bookings at the Winter Gardens will pause from Sunday 14 August 2022, to allow a full review of how best to reinvigorate this underused heritage asset, securing its future as a venue, and supporting footfall and income into the district.
Cllr Ash Ashbee, Leader of Thanet District Council said:
“The Winter Gardens will return to council management in August 2022 at which point we will be in a position to discuss our next actions. The first step in the process will be to instruct an in-depth appraisal, where experts will look at the best, most sustainable options.
“We fully recognise the level of public support that there is in the district, and beyond, for the Winter Gardens, and we are committed to including significant amounts of public engagement as part of the appraisal.
“I can assure residents that we will do everything we can to build a long-term and viable future for this well-loved local venue.”
