Highways Improvement Plan

Folkestone Town Council is helping Kent County Council to deliver changes with local community support.

With the help of local residents the Town Council is developing a Highway Improvement Plan (HIP) to highlight NEW highways improvement and safety requests from local residents’ associations, community groups and individuals.  Highway improvements can range from pedestrian crossings, traffic calming methods, cycling and walking schemes and speed management measures.

Consultation is an integral and important part of the success of the scheme and FTC would therefore like to hear from residents highlighting any highways improvements or safety concerns in their local area. Members of the public are encouraged to make contact with their Town Council, or County Member first, this helps to prioritise concerns and ideas and enables us to assist with requests in a more pro-active way. Members then use the HIP to log and prioritise concerns and ideas within the community and ultimately identify who is to fund the improvements, should there be mutual agreement between KCC and the Town Council to take forward an idea.

Working in partnership with the Town Council, KCC’s Community Engagement Team is committed to meet annually as a minimum and discuss their requests and issues raised. KCC is unable to guarantee that all requests will be deliverable, but the Community Engagement Team can advise this once it is known what the problems are.

Any day-to-day maintenance issues can continue to be logged via the online reporting tool using the link below:
