Ramsgate Promenade Shelters “Back on Track”

Following the recent demise of local contractor DJ Ellis Construction, the Ramsgate Society are pleased to report that the restoration of the Ramsgate promenade shelters is now back on track.

Negotiations have been continuing with the principle sub contractor Mather and Smith and works have restarted on site with the removal of dilapidated sections of shelters at Paragon in preparation for their complete removal and replacement with two shelter frames that have already been restored. This work is being carried out quickly to reduce road restrictions to a minimum.

The programme of work will intensify after the first week in July and it is expected that the project will be completed on time in the autumn as originally planned.

Chairman of the Ramsgate Society Jocelyn McCarthy said: “We are delighted that the initial delay caused by the demise of DJ Ellis has now been resolved. The negotiations with Mather and Smith have gone well and with some minor variations to the scope of works we have sufficient funding in place to complete the project successfully.”
