Millions of pounds could be spent on transport, connectivity, skills training, but ultimately Margate needs to encourage money / jobs into the area. I would suggest the town needs an initial makeover with properties facing the main sands being decorated / renovated in an extremely different and multicoloured way… Perhaps a joyful rainbow design incorporating street art. Arlington house (complete eyesore) needs immediate work, with the surrounding derelict shops being demolished and turned into an outside art gallery. We then need to focus on our main features which would be the renovation of the Lido (once iconic attraction) into a multi-use attraction combining restaurants and retail. At the centre of the Old Town is a only museum which is screaming out for funding and would represent the great history of Margate. I would also suggest building a museum focused on Turner at the old derelict building on Fort Mount Road where turner used to stay when it was a guest house. Intermingled
