Statement from Westgate on Sea Town Council to the Residents
Westgate-on-Sea Town Council
In response to the Kent County Council Active Travel Scheme launch and the current media coverage of the scheme; the overall consensus of the Members of the Town Council is to strongly object in principle to any proposed plans that would reduce the number of parking spaces on Station Road in Westgate-on-Sea. Although the Town Council has not had details of the proposed plans shared from Kent County Council it would appear that the scheme is being rolled out under pressure, without proper consideration, presentation or consultation and flies in the face of localism and empowering communities. As soon as the details of the plans are made available to the Town Council we will be in a position to comment further.
The Scheme we are advised imposes serious measures, without considering the consequences for the Town and the local population. It is for these reasons the Town Council is unable to provide support for the KCC proposed scheme at this time.
Chairman, Vice Chairman and all Members.
