Helping to regenerate Margate, cutting anti-social behaviour and improving people’s satisfaction with street cleaning in Thanet are just some of the plans for the council over the next year.

The measures are part of the latest refresh of the council’s Corporate Plan, which sets out its programme of work until 2011.

Amongst the priorities to be achieved between now and March 2011 are:
Supporting the work of the Margate Renewal Partnership to regenerate the town.
Completing the dredging of Ramsgate Marina and repairing the yacht basin pontoons.
Introducing a support programme for witnesses of anti-social behaviour.
Running an SOS bus in the evenings around Thanet.
Establishing a specialist domestic abuse court.
Delivering the top 10 Environmental Action Projects.
Improving public satisfaction with the cleanliness of the area.
Delivering affordable new homes.
Delivering the first phase of shared services in East Kent.

Leader of Thanet District Council, Cllr. Bob Bayford, said: “Although we’re entering the last year of our current Corporate Plan, it doesn’t mean that things are slowing down at all. As these plans show, there’s a huge amount of work to do between now and next spring and, over the coming year, we will also be drawing up a new plan that takes us from 2011 onwards. Despite the pressures brought by the current economic climate, our ultimate goal remains the same: to deliver services that make a difference to the lives of local people.”
