  • Planning notices, sllotape and cable ties removed from Sandgate High Street streetlights / lamp posts
    Article: Nov 1, 2017

    If a person, or a business, walked down a Shepway street and attached signs to streetlamps and other posts on a regular basis, and didn't take them away again soon afterwards, they could well be prosecuted for flyposting.

    When Shepway District Council have notices put up near to developments requiring planning permission, they are attached to streetlamps and other posts, and are rarely removed after the notice period expires. They are left to rot, and the tape and ties used often damage and deface the posts they are attached to. Double standards anyone?

    Twice a year beach replensighment works take place in the stretch of coast from Folkestone to Hythe, effectively moving the beach back every six months from where the sea and tide have tried to move it! The works are an important part of the sea flood defence works locally, protecting local properties from potential flooding from the sea in particularly high winds and tides.

  • Sandgate Esplanade Zebra Crossing
    Article: Oct 18, 2017

    I'm *really* pleased about this - after years of lobbying and almost getting there, at the end of October Kent Highways will be installing a new zebra crossing on Sandgate Esplanade just about at the foot of Brewers Hill! Kent's notice of the roadworks is as follows:

    Kent County Council are planning to install a new Zebra crossing point on the A259 Sandgate Esplanade, Sandgate, located at the bottom of Brewers Hill. The plans also include the installation of a kerb build out to make the zebra crossing more visible to on-coming traffic. Parking restrictions will be shortened to mitigate loss of parking. Installation of regimented parking bays to alleviate habitual footway parking and the resurfacing of the carriageway from junction of Prospect Road to junction of Castle Bay. (please see a plan of what we are planning to do below).
