In todays Isle of Thanet (18/01/08), Cllr Ken Gregory has a mention in despatches on page 9.
The little rascals at Union Row have picked up comments he made on the thanetlife blog. With a touch of butter wouldn't melt in my mouth he is quoted as saying "While I understand, and to some extent agree, that we should control our development, I also feel we are part of history, and we should be a little relaxed about what we do"
This picture is of Neptune Square, Margate in the 1930's. Under a so called "slum clearance" these old buildings were demolished and replaced with the northbound carriage of Fort Hill. Perhaps planning desicions create history but on the otherhand they can destroy it for ever.
