Airport Working Party meeting Tuesday 19th Feb

NEWSFLASH: This meeting has now been postponed. No new date has yet been set.

Oh joy of joys – another opportunity to see Thanet’s finest in action (inaction?). The greybeards and hotheads will be getting together to apply their minds to the knotty problem of whether and how Manston might contribute to Thanet’s glowing future.

Venue: Austen Room, Council Offices, Cecil Street, Margate, Kent. Click HERE for the Agenda etc.

The main topic of conversation promises to be a report from Rob Hetherington, TDC’s Economic & Regeneration Manager (see below for an annotated version).

    Hetherington was sacked. It would be cheaper and easier to hunt them and kill them wouldn’t it?

    about 3 minutes ago Same old story really, and talk about flogging a dead horse ! The catchment area for Manston is very limited as it is almost completely surrounded by sea. One way in and one way out. It is easier to travel to Gatwick or Heathrow for most of Kent than to come here. No messing about with restricted flights to Amsterdam then waiting for connections at greater expense either. Please stop holding Thanet back from regenerating year after year with fanciful talk of great things to come from the airstrip. Unless we are going to war with our neighbours over the Channel, there is not much need for this waste of space. Nobody wants to come here anyway. Why would they ? Build something on the land that will regenerate Thanet and encourage Tourism back.
