  • Water leaking from road (The Undercliffe)
    Article: Oct 23, 2018

    Kent Trading Standards have received reports of criminals phoning residents claiming there is an issue with the drains outside their property and they say the drainage company will fix it for free.

    When the criminal arrives they claim the road behind them had the blockage which was connected to their property. They say they can fix it for £1,500 to be paid in cash and they claim Kent County Council (KCC) wants the work completed.

    Sandgate Parish Council was advised yesterday (4th September) that the vendor of this site had sold the property to another buyer at a significantly higher price and was therefore withdrawing from the sale to the Parish Council. This is despite written commitments to cease marketing the site after the sale to the Parish Council had been confirmed.

  • Jerry Ridgway letter copy
    Article: Aug 20, 2018

    Over the last few days, I've been made aware of a leaflet being circulated to some areas of Sandgate by Jerry Ridgway questioning many points of the puchase of Sandgate Escarpment and Martello Towers 6 & 7. I know that Mr Ridgway has asked many of these questions to Sandgate Parish Council before, and had had responses, but it seems those have not reassured him - that is his right, despite a 6 to 1 majority (359 to 60) of those local residents who voted wanting the Council to buy the land and towers in the referendum held in May.
