Heritage lottery fund and dreamland

Comment by Cllr Clive Hart - TDC Shadow Leader & Shadow Economic Development Portfolio Holder.
"The Heritage Lottery Funding announcement is good news for Margate and for Thanet as a whole. The Dreamland site has stood empty for far too long and as someone born, bred and living in the area concerned, I know only too well how the closure of Dreamland has blighted the town since 2004. 
TDC certainly does need to get the compulsory purchase order for the site confirmed to allow the Dreamland Trust to complete their project and bring the venue back into use as a major seaside attraction".


  1. Hi Clive,
    Is this money just to restore the railway?
    If so we will still be looking for lots more money I guess!

  2. Hi Paul,
    The funding now in place will pay for the first phase of the Dreamland project.

    The restoration of the cinema building will form a second phase, for which funding has yet to be obtained.
