It's been a couple of weeks now since the official handover of the Dreamland site to the Dreamland Trust and Thanet District Council.
On the evening of Monday September 2nd the call went out on Twitter for local people to help secure the site while Thanet District Council security cover was arranged. People turned out and kept watch until the site security took over.
However, there have been a subsequent number of occasions when residents have had to call out the police to the site with the door to the Grade II* Listed Dreamland Cinema left open in bad weather and all night.
The site has had millions of pounds of public money already spent on it and more lined up to develop the site as the long awaited and wanted vintage amusement park. There are a number of listed buildings and structures on the Dreamland site.
Thanet District Council now have the responsibility for securing the site and the public's investment.
Yesterday I asked Thanet Council if the site was secure. This was their reply:
Tuesday 17th September
|Door open very windy 10am|
|Police called by residents and use Arlington parking deck to see what's happening|
|Door open in rain still|
|Door still open in rain later in day|
Wednesday 18th September
|Door open in wind 11am|
|Door with plywood keeping it shut 2.50pm|
