Repair work has started on a landmark building on Ramsgate seafront.

It follows lengthy discussions between Thanet District Council and the Rank Organisation. The work is being carried out by Rank to the Royal Victoria Pavilion on Harbour Parade, which is owned by Thanet District Council. Rank, as the tenants, have responsibility to keep the building in good repair.

Over the next few months, a range of work will be carried out to put the building back into tenantable repair. This will include redecoration and work to the roof of the pavilion. By the time the work is completed, it is hoped that this will lead to its reoccupation.

Cllr. Roger Latchford, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “This is a hugely iconic building and an important public landmark on Ramsgate seafront that local people will be familiar with. We’ve been asked a number of times what’s happening with the pavilion and I’m delighted that work is now starting there to improve it. We’re hopeful that this work will be the start of a process that will eventually lead to further regeneration of the seafront and reoccupation of the building.”
