Save Dreamland Campaign

Out on a walk round Margate to see how things as far as rubbish collection and street cleaning were going (more on that soon) and made a pass by the High Street, where Labour Councillors and supporters are eagerly collecting signatures for a petition on Dreamland which can be found here.



I’m happy to support the petition and I encourage readers to go meet Will Scobie’s team to sign up. He is providing updates on his blogThis really is an issue where we should all, regardless of political allegiance, be in agreement.

For those of you who want to read the Statement of Case being put by the Council in this upcoming Inquiry, it can be found here

Thanks for the support James and it was good to see you this morning. Just from this morning we managed to get 550 signatures and it is clear from talking to local people that they want Dreamland to be a success. There was also a real anger at the former owners for what they have done to the site and no faith in their ability to regenerate anything.

We will keep campaigning and hopefully the right decision will be made for Dreamland's future so we can carry on the regeneration of Margate and Thanet. I live in hope!

Will, has tried to drag the discussion over to ThanetLife much like Labrador that's eaten too much chocolate so see my reply there. A laudable idea but...

We will be in Ramsgate on Friday and Margate on Saturday if anyone else wants to sign the petition. It is not going to change the world but it is still worth campaigning on to show the Planning Inspector what the people of Thanet want.

By the way am I okay to use the picture that you took of us getting signatures?

James Maskell said...

Fine by me.

where is Worrow, this is another cause to Champion, surprise he is not claiming credit for it, I see Worrow did not get onto the Honours List, now there is a surprise, perhaps he is content at this time in aiming for Leadership of the council after all he is the Former Leader of the Grey Party, so he is well experienced

None so vicious and vile as the Tory Party scorned - to paraphrase a well-known saying.
