/ Ramsgate Coastal Community Team
South facing, with a high-speed rail link to London and on the south eastern national coastal path, Ramsgate’s town centre sits in close proximity to a Blue Flag beach and its unique Royal Harbour.
The aim of Ramsgate Coastal Community Team is simple: to ensure Ramsgate becomes a prosperous maritime town combining outstanding heritage and architecture with new investment and development that supports sustainable growth in all parts of the town. To achieve this we will use our historic environment as a catalyst to address the economic and social needs of our community.
The Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) initiated Coastal Community Teams to champion coastal regeneration and tackle the economic challenges that coastal towns across Britain face, with the collective aim of bringing jobs, growth and prosperity back to our resort towns. The teams are a way to engage local public, private and community sectors in the regeneration of their towns by developing and delivering solutions in partnership.
Members of Ramsgate Coastal Community Team include Ramsgate Town Council, Ramsgate Neighbourhood Plan Group, Ramsgate Regeneration Alliance, The Ramsgate Society and Ramsgate Town Team. Thanet District Council is the accountable body for Coastal Community Teams in Thanet, providing support and information.
