MP welcomes Dreamland announcemnet

South Thanet MP, Stephen Ladyman, has welcomed today's announcement that Dreamland in Margate is to receive £3.7m towards its redevelopment:
Stephen Ladyman said:

"Although Dreamland is in North Thanet all of us who live in the District should welcome this announcement. A redeveloped Dreamland will be good for local business and employment and good for the tourism and hospitality trade all across Thanet."

The money was announced today by Margaret Hodge MP, the Minister for Tourism, and is from the Government's 'Seachange' fund, set up by the Government to help the regeneration of seaside towns. The Dreamland proposal is to create a 'heritage' theme park and will include the redevelopment of the Dreamland Cinema as an entertainment venue.

"The Seachange fund demonstrates that the Government recognises the special problems that seaside towns are having and this big award for Dreamland demonstrates that helping Thanet is a high priority for this Government."
