Faversham Liberal Democrats present petition to Swale Borough Council, Kent County Council and the Secretary of State for Transport.
A petition created by Faversham Liberal Democrats calling for a bypass of the A2 at Ospringe has been submitted to Swale Borough Council, Kent County Council and the Department for Transport. The petition, which attracted over 900 supporters, calls for the building of a bypass to become council and government policy, for developments south of the A2 to include sections of the bypass within them and for funds to be allocated to plan, design and build the bypass.
Liberal Democrats in Faversham are delighted to welcome Alison Reynolds to our team.
Eddie says “Halt development near A2 until junction is made safe”
Lib Dem campaigner's persistance pays off.
Love Lane footpath FINALLY cleared, the footpath from Love Lane, to the footbridge, recreation ground and into town, has finally been cleared of weeds and overgrown trees.
Lib Dem campaigner Ben J Martin said, "the footpath had become narrow and univiting, particularly for the elderly or disabled and it was virtually impassable for people with pushchairs"
Ben has been persistantly chasing up KCC, Network Rail and other land owners along the footpath to accept their responsibilities to keeping the footpath clear.
Ben J Martin commented; "I'm delighted that footpath has been cleared back to its original width, but I'm frustrated at the time it has taken for those responsible to take action."
