Going-Up and Up
A couple of illustrations from a BBC survey from February showing relative house prices in Thanet and across Kent as a whole. these show us that local property is in demand and this is driving up prices, as more millionaires drive their Bentleys along the A229 looking for a new home with a sea view.
The leading question is of course one that asks how many thousand new homes need to be built to bring the pricing down to the county average and where are we going to put them all. There's not a single vacant car-parking space I can see left in Westgate which hasn't now got a doll's-house sized two up, two down on it.
