The Masterplan (updated 27 March 2009)

It shows the Heritage Amusement Park on a site of approximately 9 acres, with a selection of heritage rides that we have already acquired or are in the process of acquiring. The Cinema Building has also been integrated into the development, with cafes, restaurants, shops and park ticketing. The Masterplan was launched at a public event in Margate on 15 March 2009.

The Princes Regeneration Trust is project managing the grant funding applications on behalf of the Dreamland Trust, MRP and MTCRC.
