We have been working closing with Thanet District Council (TDC) on the restoration and regeneration of Pier Yard in Ramsgate, Kent. TDC were awarded Levelling Up funding in 2021, to be utilised on 6 regeneration projects which include The Clock House, Pier Yard and The Sailor’s Church & Former Home for Smack boys, all of which will be developed together with CLTH.
The Conservation repair and remediation works will address a backlog of maintenance of defects to both buildings, which will host the existing ecclesiastical facilities (Sailor’s Church) and remodelled facilities. This will include Conservation works to the external building fabric and internal areas. These works will be in line with the English Heritage’s ‘Conservation Principles: Policies and Guidance for the sustainable management of the historic environment’ (2008) framework with hierarchical priority for the most critical conservation requirements.
Consideration and protection of wildlife species inhabiting the site will be paramount in design decisions, to provide long-term habitation while improving the site’s ecology.
