Margate property hotspot

The secret is no more, the genie is out of the bottle Margate is officially the place to move to. Unusually for me I was ahead of the curve and have enjoyed Thanet and its wonderful charm and character for over thirty years. Now we are reckoned to be at the top of a list of places to find a property market bargain. This news came out last week when I was in hospital so today is the first time I have been up to posting the thing that we who live here have known for years. I am always saying about our marvellous beaches and the attraction of living on the coast. Having been in London for my visit to hospital I can see why people would want to get out of the capital.
I want level to enjoy the benefits of living by the coast but on Simon Moore's blog people are talking about the One thousand homes proposed in Westgate/Birchington. I don't know anything about these homes but the UK has not built enough houses to keep up with the needs since the war. That finished in 1945  so UK PLC needs to get its finger out and create those houses the current Government has talked the talk but failed miserably when it comes to house building and I must say Labour's record in the Blair Brown years were no better. Thanet is a fantastic place I have enjoyed my time here but for our children and grandchildren to do the same we need to build more houses and as unpleasant an idea that may seem we need them.

Manston in news again

I have only been back from a stay in hospital for a few hours and I see Manston Airport in the news headlines. I never saw the article but will catch it on iPlayer tomorrow. From what made out TDC trying to blame central government. It is true the transport Secretary could have give Manstan a role to play in alleviating the bottle neck in capacity at Heathrow and Gatwick. If the present or previous governments had been serious about Thanet they would have created thousands of jobs for Thanet but as I have said on this blog before money talks louder that creating a job for the great unwashed and Manston was sold out to enable a few to develop houses.

I will come back to this when I recover fully.
