Ramsgate Heritage Action Zone

The Heritage Action Zone in Ramsgate will look to achieve economic growth by using the historic environment as a catalyst.

The aim is for the Heritage Action Zone to grow Ramsgate into a prosperous maritime town where outstanding heritage and architecture coupled with new investment and development strengthens the economy for the benefit of the local community.

Key actions

The Heritage Action Zone in Ramsgate will be based around a wide variety of projects aimed at engaging the local community with their heritage as well as increasing our understanding of the rich local heritage including the exciting maritime story.

Teams from across Historic England will be working in partnership with local organisations to understand what makes the heritage in Ramsgate really special, to share its stories and work to improve and protect those places for the future.

There will be lots of opportunities for local people and groups to get involved with initial plans set to involve schools, give opportunity for training in heritage related skills and public exhibitions and programmes.

The next five years are set to be an exciting time for Ramsgate and you can keep up to date via our news pages.
