The Dream Lives On – Appeal Overturned

Dreamland Scenic RailwayMargate’s Dreamland project is set to progress further as an appeal to the development has been overturned.

Thanet Council can now proceed with transforming the former Dreamland amusement park back to its former glory, containing a number of heritage attractions and the Grade-listed Scenic Railway which has stood on the site since 1920. The rollercoaster itself continued operating till 2005, whilst the park ceased operation in 2003.

Under new plans for the location, attractions such as Blackpool’s former Whip and Southport’s King Solomon’s Mines are to be restored and enjoyed by a new generation of thrill-seekers and fun lovers.

Releasing a statement, representative of Dreamland Margate said;

We are pleased to announce that the Court of Appeal has dismissed the former owners’ appeal against the High Court decision to uphold the confirmation of the council’s CPO.
