Network Rail propose to close the unmanned foot crossing over the railway just to the west of Hollingbourne Station and divert the footpath so it uses the railway bridge at Hollingbourne Station. A number of residents have expressed views on the matter so a public consultation process is to be held. Please Read More for further information.
KENT COUNTY COUNCIL
To all interested parties
APPLICATION TO DIVERT PART OF PUBLIC FOOTPATH KH183 FROM THE AT GRADE FOOT CROSSING TO THE EXISTING STEPPED BRIDGE AT HOLLINGBOURNE RAILWAY STATION IN THE BOROUGH OF MAIDSTONE.
I am writing to let you know that the above proposal will be considered by a Regulation Committee Member Panel at 10.00 am on Wednesday, 13 December 2017 at Hollingbourne Village Hall, Eyhorne Street, Hollingbourne ME17 1TR. I enclose a copy of the Procedure to be followed.
The report that the Panel will be considering will be published on the KCC website www.kent.gov.uk/aboutthecouncil/councilmeetings/committees on or shortly before Tuesday, 5 December. If you would like to make representations to the Panel, you will need to contact me at the above address by the Monday before the Panel meets (Monday, 11 December). Up to four people may speak to the Panel on any one application. If you do wish to speak, could you please let me know whether you wish to speak in support or opposition to the proposal.
The Panel Members will be visiting the part of the Public Footpath under discussion at 9.30 am. You are most welcome to attend. The purpose of this visit will be to enable Members of the Panel to familiarise themselves with the area. They will not be debating the merits of the application at that stage. The site visit may delay the start of the panel meeting itself.
Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about the arrangements for the day.
