UPDATE – 9th September 2020 Proposed travellers’ site

Dear Gordon,
As you will see if you haven’t already, we are bringing forward a decision not to proceed with the temporary traveller sites in favour of a permanent one identified through the forthcoming local plan review.  
No idea where that might be, but the local plan will bring a full statutory consultation and external inspection, unlike the temporary provision, so any decision will be more robust.
I hope this gives you some reassurance in respect of Potten Street. I agree the matrix wasn’t a sound basis for proceeding – even one that added up!
Rick Everitt
Leader, Thanet District Council

Parish Council join forces to support Thanet Community Fund

The St Nicholas at Wade with Sarre Parish Council has agreed to donate £300 to the Thanet Community Fund.

Thanet District Council is using funds from the TDC Community Lottery and has set up a Crowd funding page to support specific areas of the community in their response to COVID-19 emergency.

Several of the Town and Parish councils have also expressed some interest in  providing funding and have created the Thanet Community Fund and it is therefore proposed that all funds provided are put together to maximise the benefit across three key areas, which are as follows;

  1. Provide essentials that are not currently being provided in the food delivery packs especially feminine hygiene products.
  2. Support innovative ways of dealing with domestic abuse during the emergency in specific areas not covered by the additional Central Government funding recently announced.
  3. Support long term health and well-being projects in the district as part of the recovery phase.


Items purchased will be given to Global Generation Church in order for them to distribute in emergency cases and to those other voluntary teams who are working with us in response to the current situation.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The very best action to take is for the entire community to think about vulnerable people (elderly, sick, immobile etc) who may need some assistance. Knock on their door and offer help or assistance.

Latest Updates Available Here (Updated Daily at 2pm)

We are working closely with Public Health England and the local NHS to respond to the situation. Public Health England is currently contacting people who may have had close contact with the confirmed case. Close contacts will be given health advice about symptoms and emergency contact details to use if they become unwell in the 14 days after they had contact with the confirmed case. This tried and tested method will ensure that any risk to them is minimised and the wider public is protected.

Public Health England and the NHS are well-prepared to deal with coronavirus and the priority is to safeguard local communities which sometimes involve taking preventative measures to help reduce the risk of further cases. The UK is well prepared for these types of incidents and there is rapid and effective testing undertaken by PHE for this virus. The NHS has expert teams of highly-trained staff and specialist hospital units around the country ready to receive and care for any patients with any highly infectious disease.

Public Health England are updating the coronavirus page on the GOV.UK website daily with the latest information.

Prevent coronavirus spreading

There are things we can all do to help stop viruses like coronavirus spreading:

  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately
  • wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

If you are worried about your symptoms, use the online NHS 111 coronavirus service or call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP, pharmacy, hospital or other healthcare setting.
