The High Streets Heritage Action Zone is part of a £95 million government-funded programme delivered by Historic England to unlock the potential of 68 high streets across the country.
The Ramsgate scheme runs southwards along the lower High Street from its junction with George Street to historic Harbour Street, which then leads to the town’s Royal Harbour.
Government funding of just under £602,000 was secured last year for the Ramsgate scheme.
