With Manston the options now appear to be.
1 Saving the airport that we once had – the problem here is partly the one we had when? And that there seem to be no viable takers.
2 Building an airfreight hub – I think the problem here is that the resultant air pollution would kill a few thousand people mostly in Broadstairs and be very disruptive on the noise front in Ramsgate.
3 An aviation heritage tourist attraction focused on the two existing museums and using a large proportion of the existing runway – I am yet to work out the problems.
Some new Manson DCO documents on the pins website here are the links to the two significant ones
Pleasurama. The people replacing the site hoarding say the are contractors and their contract is with The Ramsgate Development Company – the know of no plans to to start work on the site.

Our towns, mostly started out as towns of any consequence by being given permission to hold a market.
You had a big village which usually built up because it was by a harbour or where several roads met and eventually permission was granted to hold a market and from that the prosperity developed and the towns were born.
Shops developed because the trades people, tailors, cobblers, brewers and so on sold what they made from their premises and a lot of them offers repair services. Later on shops just buying goods from manufacturers developed and many of them would order items in for people.
Back in my fairly distant past my family owned a small chain of bookshops in Hertfordshire and the absolute pits of this was ordering books for people.
At that time there were about 2,000 publishers in the UK and the all behaved differently. How long will it take? Will there be a small order surcharge?
As I said previously my mobile phone broke, which if you have children at and neither your children not the school can contact you is a serious matter today.
On the governance front, taking the trade from the towns and setting at WC well what can you say

It’s my hypotenuse you know doctor, but oh but the worst of it was my phone, it went wrong last night. Recently I have become dependent on my phone and it stopped working, terrible really, and so – having ordered part B, which was much cheaper in China – took it to the phone shop.
I am now using one of the phones that my children used to use – a Samsung, it’s a veritable antique of a phone and completely unable to handle the preinstalled Samsung bloatware which must have been smaller when it was first manufactured.
I’m not really sure if it will stabilise before it runs out of memory.
I did a bit more on the new painting from the Pav
