Pleasurama the name given to the vacant site on Ramsgate front which has plagued pages of local media since the dawn of time, is back in the news, this weeks gazette has a good half page devoted to the subject, on the table is an offer of cash from Cardy? Construction who have worked with SPF ventures who've failed to complete their original deal.
Elsewhere on the gazettes letter page, labour's councillor Rick Everett appears riled up, since councillor Ian Driver and Bob Bayford raised the issue of not being given an opportunity to study confidential legal advice on this matter.
Now I'm not sure what qualification or experience Cllr Everett has if any in matters of finance or business, but surely since this matter has gone on for so long couldn't the council simple put the property out to open tender, then we can satisfy ourselves that a proper market price is paid and if Cardy have a competitive offer, then they can proceed.
In Thanet we are sick of confidential deals, we live in a democracy can "officers" and councillors show a bit of respect.
