one has to wonder why - no one in govt seems to have spotted , or been concerened that the company " terms of service " documents are clearly for a food delivery service .
It is understood that Seaborne has hired Dutch company Van Oord to prepare the port to accommodate large cross-Channel ferries. A harbour tradesman, who did not want to be named, said: “It’s a shambles. Everything is so cloak and dagger and mysterious – Seaborne have been trying to get hold of this harbour for two or three years now but they have no experience or rep in the industry. It’s not just the dredging – none of the walkways are safe at the moment, parts of it are condemned. It’s a minimum of 12 weeks’ work. There’s no way it will be up and running in time.”
The residents of Ramsgate have been lobbying for the redevelopment of its ailing port for more than 18 months. Run by Thanet District Council and incurring estimated losses of £20m since 2010, Ramsgate harbour has not had a cross-Channel service since 2013. The arrival, then, of Seaborne Freight might have been met with more enthusiasm.
