Here's another photo this morning, Lockwoods Yard in Westgate, which has just been approved for - conditional - development.
The disused yard, which is the only listed one of its kind, dates back to 1872 and plans were approved last week for an office and housing.
Now, I was under the distinct impression that the latest plans met with the approval of the residents association but this week's Thanet Gazette (p9) suggests that this is not the case and I would welcome any comments on the subject.
I can remember, as a boy, when the yard was active, with a nursery opposite - now new buildings - . When the railway level crossing was suspended and fenced-across, years ago, it cut off that part of Westgate and I would prefer to see it used constructively and sympathetically than fall into complete disrepair.
What's your view on the subject?
On another note, I also hear from Cllr Goodwin that Westgate shopkeepers are keen to see the return of CCTV in the village. This isn't cheap, so while I will visiting as many shops as possible for a chat, please don't hesitate to drop me or any of your other ward councillors an email.
