Update on the Royal Victoria Pavilion, Ramsgate
The Council continues to process the proposals submitted by private investors in connection with the Royal Victoria Pavillion in Ramsgate.
Expert opinion on the proposals has been received by Council and this information will be considered at the next Cabinet Meeting on Thursday 3 April.
Cabinet will be required to make a decision on whether to take the proposals forward to the next stage and continue lease negotiations, which would be carefully negotiated to ensure that the incoming tenant will comply with all necessary listed building consents and obtain a satisfactory premises licence.
Other considerations that need to be satisfied are the grant of satisfactory planning consent and change of use for the property.
The alternative option is to refuse to progress the proposals in which case the building will remain leased to Rank for them to continue marketing the property.
