Residents are being asked to shape future improvements to the district’s active travel network by commenting on draft proposals.

The Folkestone and Hythe Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan sets out recommendations for new and enhanced walking, wheeling and cycling routes to enable residents and visitors to make more journeys on foot or by cycle.

Once approved, the plan will make it easier to make the case for future active travel investment – something both Folkestone & Hythe District Council and Kent County Council have both, working in partnership, been successful with in recent years.

Views on preferred cycling and walking routes – as well as those used by residents using a wheelchair or mobility aid – are being invited as part of the consultation process, which closes at 11.59pm on Sunday 15 April.

A Folkestone & Hythe District Council spokesperson said:

“All feedback, local knowledge and insights will be invaluable in understanding the challenges and opportunities for active travel improvements in Folkestone & Hythe.

“Transforming local areas in ways that support active travel will help reduce congestion, improve air quality, better people’s physical and mental health, as well as support the local economy.”

Visit the public consultation webpage to read the documents and have your say. Alternatively, paper forms can be completed at the Civic Centre in Folkestone during normal opening hours.
