Thanet is a local government district found within the ceremonial county of Kent, in the far south east of the United Kingdom. The district is largely made up of the Isle of Thanet, which is an area of land that was once separated from the mainland of the UK by the Wantsum Channel which has since dried up.
The present local government district of Thanet covers a slightly larger land area than the historic Isle of Thanet and shares borders with the City of Canterbury to the west, and the Dover district to the south. The district is predominantly coastal in nature and the three major towns within it are the seaside towns of Ramsgate, Margate and Broadstairs which at different times in their history were once popular resorts.
A Brief History Of Thanet
The Isle of Thanet’s land formation is thought to have developed over 7,000 years ago and due to its close proximity to the continent, has often borne the brunt of invasions and attacks by overseas forces aiming to take England.
In more recent history, the rough area of the Isle of Thanet has been an administrative entity on and off since the latter part of the 19th Century. It was in 1974, however, that the current local government district of Thanet was created as a direct consequence of the 1972 Local Government Act.
Population And Accidents In Thanet
According to the latest available population data, the Thanet district is home to just over 136,000 permanent residents which gives it a comparatively high population density of around 3,400 per square mile.
That kind of density is usually reserved for cities and major urban centres and as such demonstrates just how significant the conurbation formed by Ramsgate, Margate and Broadstairs truly is. Therefore it is clear to see that Thanet as a whole is a busy and active district which as a result is likely to see its fair share of accidents and injuries. For that reason, then, it is pertinent to discuss the issues surrounding Thanet non fault claim proceedings.
Thanet Non Fault Claim Proceedings
A resident of, or visitor to, the south east Kent district is entitled to pursue Thanet non fault claim proceedings if and when they have suffered an injury in the area which was demonstrably someone else’s fault. This is so that the victim can gain a measure of recompense for the physical, financial and emotional hardships produced by their injury.
