This consultation is now closed.

We are seeking your views on our initial ideas for five walking and cycling improvement schemes across Kent. These seek to improve the health, wellbeing and safety of local people, as well as support the local economy. 

We have received funding for the following five schemes:

  • Canterbury: Littlebourne Road to the City Centre
  • Folkestone: Central Railway Station to Cheriton
  • Thanet: Birchington to Margate Sands
  • Folkestone: Hythe to Dymchurch
  • Gravesham: Gravesend to Northfleet

The schemes aim to encourage and enable active travel, which means walking or cycling as a means of transport as well as for leisure. Making active travel an attractive and realistic choice for short journeys.

We want to understand and incorporate the views of local residents, stakeholders and the travelling public in our proposals. Your feedback will be vital in helping us shape how the schemes are progressed.

Scheme Plans - full size plans available in the 'Document section' below

What happens after the consultation?

Following the end of the consultation, a report will be compiled summarising the analysis of the feedback you have given. We will use this information to help shape the development of these schemes.

In Summer 2021, we will carry out a second consultation to present designs, with more detail of the schemes, and again to seek your feedback to ensure that they best suit the needs of local communities.
