    Nearly there!

    And so the wheels grind remorselessly on but to what end, I wonder. If the decision goes against the developers I can see them appealing and so another two or three years will pass....all very depressing isn't it?

      Indeed Charlie.

      Long time no see. Hope you are well. We are down in Bromley struggling with the health care system regarding she who must be obeyed's mother. (have I got the apostrophe right there?)

        Manage to pop up now and then, Paul. Ah - similar struggles here but with Mrs CH sadly needing more from an embattled NHS, than it is able to supply.......

          Very sorry to hear that Charlie, I wish you both well.

          A bit more from Thanet'

          I not that the LDC are not granting permission other than for airport use but, as far as I am aware you do not need planning approval for demolition, although I haven't checked to see if this applies in a case such as this.

            In the Thanetgazette post #100 it mentions that RiverOak would want to relocate the two museums. Am I wrong in understanding that the land on which they stand was gifted to them by Mrs Goag et al or was it just tenure?

              I believe that the land is owned by the current owners and they have guaranteed the museums' existence post development. But as with much to do with the Manston saga, that might not be the case. The thought of Mrs Gloag gifting anything to anyone........

              Thank you for your kind remarks in #104, Paul.

                I saw it as a public relations stunt Charlie. I cannot remember where I read this and, of course, it was media report so not reliable.
                Take your point about Mrs Gloag though.

                            A rush (rash) of news as Stone Hill Park release their latest and, alleged, final "masterplan" which is illustrative.

                              Let battle commence. With the release of their Master Plan, oh sorry, scoping report, RiverOak appear now to be getting their ducks in a row for what, no doubt, will be a big battle, I am sure Mrs. Gloag will not give her investment up easily. With the London airport expansion on hold following Brexit will this privately funded venture come along at just the right time.
                              Sit back and watch the sparks at least walk if not fly.

                              Haven't read it yet and as we are leaving for what is reportedly going to be a sunny Gloucestershire/Hampshire for two weeks.

                                Following a deafening silence from both sides the latest move by Mrs. Gloag's side now uses one of the key words "heritage". Just need the other key word, "education" and they think they will be good to make Heritage Lottery application.
