Kent Active Travel Banner

The government have created an Active Travel Fund to enable councils to provide improved walking and cycling facilities. Local Authorities were invited to submit bids to fund five schemes, which needed to meet clear criteria set out by government. We have been successful in securing almost £6.1m.

It is our intention to consult with communities as soon as possible on our initial concept designs and scheme locations. This consultation will launch in early December and run for six weeks.

The schemes are still very much in an early design stage. We want to understand and incorporate the views of local residents, stakeholders and the travelling public in our proposals. Feedback from these consultations will be vital in helping to shape how the schemes are progressed.

Further consultation will also take place throughout the development of these schemes.

This page will be updated for the launch of the consultation. This will include a consultation booklet, which will provide information on why these schemes have been selected and details of our proposals. Feedback will be collected via an online questionnaire. We are not holding any in-person consultation events at this time due to the current social distancing restrictions in place as result of COVID-19.

For those who are unable to take part online, an email and telephone number will be provided to request paper copies of the booklet and questionnaire and for any questions relating to the schemes. This contact information will be included on our publicity material.

The consultation will be promoted in a variety of ways, throughout the consultation period, to engage as many people as possible in the development of these schemes. This will include distribution of a promotional postcard to residents and businesses in the immediate vicinity of the proposed schemes, emails to stakeholder organisations and those registered with our consultation directory, press releases, posters displayed locally and the use of social media.
