Visit to Ramsgate Project MotorHouse

I spent a couple of hours in the company of Janet Fielding today. She is an inspirational woman running an inspirational project.  Janet talks about her plans for the former motor museum and the role it could play in regenerating Ramsgate. Having been inside the building for the first time today I was overwhelmed by what I saw. This building literally oozes regeneration potential for Ramsgate and Janet Fielding has the dream and the drive to make it happen. Ramsgate needs more Janet’s. Step forward because I want to interview the women and men who are going to regenerate Ramsgate and create a future for children and grandchildren. You know who you are.

PS the  loud humming noise  is the generator of the ex-King of Norway’s Royal Yacht the Horten which has been moored at the port for the past 4 months. I have been approached by several people about  this constant low pitched noise which is disturbing people’s sleep. I am on the case and will report back soon.

  1. In relation to the motor museum, could I suggest that a motion is placed before councillors? "Stop wasting money doing viability studies on the airport and preparing high-level business plans for something you don't own. Use the money, instead, to support this fantastic project. Having spent tens of millions on the Turner Centre and £12.8 million (and counting) doing a compulsory purchase of Dreamland you can afford to give £1 million to Ramsgate for this project; or is Margate going to continue to get all our money thrown at it?"

  2. Dear Purple OM. Please could you explain to me how it is possible to spend £4,000,000 on chalets?

  3. Ian I would be no good as a Councillor, but on the whole you are, other than your support for Manston which would have polluted our Ramsgate skies killed tourism and investment forever leaving Ramsgate as a sacrificial town, for the financial good of Thanet. Far to big a price to pay, when we alone have 2 miles of beach front that would employ more people and bring in tourist pounds straight into the local economy. Being in politics takes passion for the people and place you work for, also foresight to be able to see past the crowd and look deeper into any proposal. I can see these quality's in you, keep up the good work :)

  4. Completely agree purpleom and ignore the nitpicking as TDC had £60M in tax each year. Would you increase that or sack staff

  6. With filming now allowed we just need a policy banning secret meetings and documents at TDC. Which councillors with elections soon would vote for secrecy?

  7. Interesting 18:48 as it is could TDC be cut without losing essential services? TDC seems hugely overstaffed to do so little?

    Why increase business tax that would reduce businesses and the required jobs wouldn't it?
