    The final draft of the Folkestone Town Centre Place Plan is now live at https://www.folkestone-hythe.gov.uk/folkestoneplaceplan

    The Place Plan consists of three main documents: an Urban Appraisal, Engagement Report and the draft Place Plan.

    • The Urban Appraisal was undertaken during the early stage of the Place Plan development to better understand the area. The study was extensive covering subjects including a socio-economic appraisal, a planning and area review and a baseline of transport and movement in and around the town. This also included an appraisal of local assets, landmarks and uses as well as environmental considerations. This study culminated in some key findings which were pivotal in informing the content of the Place Plan.

    There's less than 100 days until COP26.

    That's a huge climate summit attended by leaders from across the globe, hosted right here in the UK. It's a chance for the UK to show real leadership in tackling the climate crisis - but Boris Johnson won't take it seriously.

    We're sick of years of Conservative complacency on the climate. So today, the Liberal Democrats are launching our own Green Recovery Plan.

I've asked and been told there is no reason I can't share it, so am! Thanks to F&HDC's Fred Miller for the report and underlying work.

  • County Councillor Richard Streatfeild
    Article: Jun 20, 2021

    Two years ago Kent Conservatives promised to deliver support to all children with Special Educational Needs within 20 weeks. In 2021 only a third are getting the support they need in that time. Not only is it a broken promise, it is also a failure of political leadership and will only add in time to an adult social care budget spiralling out of control.
