- A new contact within TDC for you is Madeline Homer, on firstname.lastname@example.org - Ms Homer has taken on Brian White's role in Regeneration, and reported to the recent Airport Working Party that:
- the S106 is voluntary (wrong)
- the current monitoring gives no cause for concern (judge for yourselves)

I live in Ramsgate and was woken up at 3.50am this morning (1st July 2011) by a plane coming in to land at Manston. I couldn't get back to sleep. I feel terrible now and I know I'll feel terrible for the rest of the day. It makes Ramsgate a bad place to live and I find that really upsetting.Read More »
