Westgate resident Ann Finch asks: "How do the readers of Thanet Life feel, regarding the plans put forward by West Bay Cafe Westgate, to use part of the shelter beside the cafe, for storage facilities to house their tables and chairs. As it is the only shelter available from the sun and rain at West Bay and is used by many people I think the planning application shall not be popular, and will be opposed by many. "

"I have been told half the area of the shelter may be used for the storage, if the planning application is granted, and it has has been called in for the 21st June. Will it leave enough seating area for the elderly and those who wish not to sit in direct sun,........ I wonder?"
Ed: I'm with Ann on this one. The Cafe is an excellent one and has already expanded its building during the winter months and so is now almost twice the size it was. I think expanding any further towards the delightful period shelter seen here, is not in the interests of either residents or tourists, as it is used consistently throughout the season. Councillors please take note.
