Memorial Benches in Broadstairs and St Peter’s are a popular way to remember a loved one who has passed on, and the benches are managed by Thanet District Council.
The person to ask is different, depending on where the bench or seat is to be located.
For a bench on the footway, near to the road, the contact is Thanet District Council Civil Enforcement Office, tel: 01843 577054.
If you would like a bench on the promenade, a grassed area next to the sea or a park, the contact is Thanet District Council Open Spaces tel: 01843 577961.
If any of the above contact numbers are unavailable, please contact the Thanet District Council main switchboard, tel: 01843 577000.
If Thanet District Council cannot help you, there is a small possibility that a bench could be placed on Town Council land. The Town Council owns land at Mockett’s Wood in St Peter’s and the Culmer’s Amenity Land in central Broadstairs.
