The development agreement for the former Pleasurama site in Ramsgate has been signed by Thanet District Council and the developers SFP Ventures UK Ltd.

It follows the decision taken at a meeting of Full Council on Thursday 23 July that the council would proceed with the development of the site.

The work will be carried out by Cardy Construction, a firm based in Kent, which is well known in Thanet. Preliminary works are due to start shortly, with the steel frame scheduled to be erected on site in early 2010.

Cllr. Roger Latchford, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: "Many building projects have been cancelled because of the economic recession, and I am particularly pleased that this major regeneration scheme in Ramsgate is now going ahead with a well respected building firm carrying out the works. I look forward to seeing this project progress, as it will bring many regeneration benefits to Ramsgate, including local job opportunities."

The development, known as Royal Sands, will comprise of a hotel, 107 apartments, cafés and restaurants.

  1. Still sceptical that it will ever happen. How long has it been barren land for? A waste of time and money, wont believe it 'till I see it finished. A white elephant and a real missed opportunity to use the land for something more "family" orientated.
