Update March 2018


Thank you to everyone who took part in the consultation on proposals for a new Sturry Link Road.  We consulted from 26th July to 6th September and received 116 responses. The full Consultation Report summarising the results of the consultation is now available to download from the ‘Summary of Results’ section below.

After consideration of responses from the consultation, alterations to the design will be made and the scheme design finalised.

The next step is to submit a detailed planning application for the Link Road. This will be followed by determination of the planning applications for both the Link Road and adjacent development sites at Sturry and Broad Oak.

It is anticipated that construction works will commence in 2020.    


Original Consultation Text

Kent County Council (KCC) is seeking your views on the proposals being put forward for a new Sturry Link Road, and would like to hear your thoughts.

The proposed road aims to reduce traffic through the centre of Sturry, relieve congestion at the Sturry level crossing and cater for extra traffic from the new housing proposed at Sturry, Broad Oak and beyond at Herne Bay.
