People are invited to share their views on proposals to encourage walking and cycling across Dartford, Ebbsfleet and Gravesend.

All are part of phase three of the wider Green Corridors Programme, which aims to deliver and maximise the quality of cycling and walking networks across Ebbsfleet Garden City and the surrounding area.

KCC has worked closely with Ebbsfleet Development Corporation (EDC), and Dartford and Gravesham Borough Councils to develop the proposals, which connect existing routes and provide residents with more opportunities to choose cycling and walking for their day-to-day journeys.

The schemes are being funded by EDC and delivered by KCC.

A consultation on early ideas for eight of the phase three schemes took place over the summer. The results of the summer consultation have been presented in a summary report, which can be found on our webpage.

The feedback has helped shape initial ideas to create the more specific proposals shown in this consultation.

KCC is now carrying out a second consultation on three of the schemes, which are at an early design stage.

Kent County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, David Brazier, said: “As we look to develop these schemes we need to continue to understand and incorporate the views of the local communities and ensure that what we have proposed suits their needs.

“The principle behind the Green Corridors Programme is to support a walking and cycling culture by making routes more attractive, safer and better connected.

“I would encourage everyone with an interest in these proposals to share their views. We want to continue to understand and incorporate the views of residents, businesses, the travelling public

and other stakeholders into our scheme design. This feedback will be vital in helping to shape these schemes.”

The consultation, available at www.kent.gov.uk/greencorridors, will run for six weeks from today [1st December] to 19th January.
