Margate's Turner Contemporary: Regeneration success?


At a cost of £17m the Turner Contemporary gallery in Margate is seen by Thanet Council as a major regeneration and cultural tourism project.

But is the Turner Contemporary a regeneration success or is it driving a divide between the old town and its struggling high street?

Brendan Woods, a Margate shopkeeper, challenges Councillor Robert Baysford, Leader of Thanet District Council, about the impact of the gallery on the town's high street.
