Margate to get Parish Council?

Margate might finally get the parish council it so desperately needs if TDC can figure out how to put a link on a web page...

As early as 2009 Thanet Star was saying Margate needs a parish council we warned Margate was missing out and the glaring thing that has always been missing from Margate has been a council of it's own and it shows.

Margate is pretty much the only unparished area in Kent and has the most closed shops, the most lack-lustre Christmas tree and and a lot of other issues that a dedicated small scale council of unpaid councillors could and should address.

There is a consultation which gives us the chance to say damn right we want a parish council for Margate and the link is, in theory, on this page but the link opens a new window with the page you were just looking at and not the consultation...

Nice one TDC.
