Canterbury: City Centre to Littlebourne Road cycling and walking improvements

Following on from the consultation undertaken last year on this scheme, Kent County Council (KCC) has undertaken detailed design, taking into consideration the comments received during the previous consultation.

We want to create a safer and direct route for cycling from the east of Canterbury into the city centre. The proposed scheme runs along Longport, from the Spring Lane / St Martin’s Hill junction in the east, past the Church Street / Lower Bridge Street junction in the west and into the city centre.

There is more information on our proposals in the Consultation Document and Scheme Plans, which are available from the 'Documents' section on this page.

A consultation drop in event will take place on 22 September from 3pm to 5:35pm at The Beany House of Art & Knowledge, 18 High Street, Canterbury, Kent CT1 2RA.

Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO)

There are two TROs as part of this scheme. The effects of the proposed Orders will be to:

  • introduce or amend waiting restrictions (double yellow lines) on Longport in Canterbury.
  • reduce the existing 30mph speed limit to 20mph on Albert Road, Church Street (St Pauls), Edward Road, Ivy Lane, Love Lane, St Pauls Terrace, Longport, Lower Chantry Street and Monastery Street in Canterbury.

The orders are being made for the following reasons:

  • for avoiding danger to persons or other traffic using the road or any other road for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising.
  • for preserving or improving the amenities of the area through which the road runs.
  • for facilitating the passage on the road or any other road of any class of traffic (including pedestrians).
  • for preventing damage to the road or to any building on or near the road.

Full details, including the scheme plan, can be found in the Public Notice and Statement of Reason document.

Your views matter

We want to continue to understand and incorporate the views of the local community, stakeholders and the travelling public into the design of this scheme. You can provide feedback by completing the questionnaire.

Any person wishing to object or support the TROs before they are made permanent can also do so via the questionnaire.

What happens after the consultation?

Following the consultation, a report will be compiled summarising the analysis of the responses. This report will be made available from this webpage. The feedback will be used to help finalise the scheme design and reported to the Canterbury Joint Transportation Board (JTB) in November 2022.

If the decision is taken to proceed the scheme then alterations to the Traffic Regulation Orders will be advertised as ‘Made Orders’. This will be publicised via a notice in the local newspaper and on this webpage.

  • We have created this questionnaire for you to register your support or objection to the proposed TROs and provide comments on the wider active travel scheme. 

    The questionnaire for this consultation is in two parts:

    • Part one – questions for the TROs. In this section you will be asked if you support or oppose the amendments to on-street parking and the speed limit and asked to give your reasons.
    • Part two – questions to help us better understand your views on the scheme as a whole. 

    We recommend that you read the full Public Notices and Consultation Document before completing this form. These are available from the 'Consultation documents' section. 

    Please ensure that you submit your response so that your views are taken into account.
