PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON HIGHWAYS
Dear Upchurch Residents,
We are writing to invite you to participate in a crucial decision-making process that will directly impact our community – the improvement of our local highways. The Parish Council would like to invite you to participate in a public consultation and help the council to make informed decisions that align with the needs and preferences of the community.
KCC Highways have committed to look at one project for improvement from each parish per year. We have a number of options UPC are considering. The Parish Council has narrowed the options to just three :
Option 1 Progressing the already approved plan for the narrowing of Oak Lane and giving priority to vehicles coming out of the village, north of the junction with Wallbridge Lane.
Option 2 Horsham Lane junction with The Street.
Option 3 Forge Lane junction with Holywell Lane.
Objectives of the Consultation:
To gather input from residents on what you feel in the most important highways issue that needs addressing. This allows residents to have your say in the areas we request KCC to prioritise on your behalf. Please let us know your top 2 priorities of the 3 options.
How You Can Participate
We value your input and encourage you to participate in this consultation. There are several ways you can get involved:
- Using the Upchurch Parish Councils website, contact the council, with your choice.
- Send your decision via email at [email protected] or write to the clerk at 2 Alfriston Grove, West Malling ME19 4SR.
- Attend our next Parish Council meeting on Thursday November 2, held at Upchurch Village Hall at 19.30pm
- Consultation Period: 11.10.23 – 05.11.23
Once Parish Council has analysed all the feedback, we will work closely with KCC Highways to develop a plan for the future of our roads. We will ensure transparency throughout the process and keep you informed about any developments or decisions.
Thank you for your participation.
