Bit of speedy back-story first. Dreamland closed in 2005. The Scenic Railway was listed Grade II in 2002, and was upgraded to Grade II* in 2011. This means it can't be knocked down, basically. Unfortunately, 25% of it was destroyed in a fire in 2008. Since then, a Thanet Council have wanted the site to be handed over to the Dreamland Trust, who plan on building a heritage theme park on it, and restoring Dreamland to its former glory. Unfortunately, the current owners don't want to give it up easily, and the council had to launch a Compulsory Purchase Order, which held a public hearing earlier this year. The result of the CPO is expected in the next few months. Realising they had no hope as it was, the current owners revised their plans for the site to include a mix of housing and heritage, keeping the Scenic but little else. To bring us up to date, here is an ITV News video story about the current owners revised plans to try and keep their greedy hands on Dreamland. Spotted by Martyn B on CF. Very worrying stuff. Keep your fingers crossed for the council and the Save Dreamland trust.
