Herne Bay: Railway Station to Central Parade

Kent County Council (KCC) is proposing to introduce a new active travel scheme to promote walking and cycling between Herne Bay Railway Station and Central Parade.

The scheme aims to encourage and enable active travel, which means walking or cycling as a means of transport as well as for leisure, making active travel an attractive and realistic choice for short journeys. KCC places a high priority on encouraging active travel and wants to ensure that walking and cycling are safe, easy, attractive and inclusive.

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

Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO)

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

  • amend the existing double yellow lines on Station Road.
  • introduce a right and left-hand turn ban movements, one-way roads and prohibition of driving (except cycles) on the Central Parade, Dolphin Street, Mortimer Street, Pier Avenue, Richmond Street, Station Road, St Georges Terrace and Telford Street.

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).

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

Your views matter

We want to understand the views of the local community and other interested parties and to use this feedback to help produce the detailed designs for 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 finilaise 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.

    • 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.
