Article: Oct 5, 2020In Update from the Folkestone and Hythe District Licencing Team
I've been asked by a number of local residents and licencees what checking was being made of Covid-19 arrangements such as Track and Trace, distancing and 10pm closure in pubs, bars, clubs, restaurants locally.
I received over the weekend the helpful update below on what the requirements being tested are, and what work is going on in those areas, and thought it would be useful to pass on!

You may also have heard very recently that the Home Office contacted the District Council last Thursday afternoon (10th September) to explain they had plans, previously never mentioned or discussed, to house a migrant processing centre at Napier Barracks.
I am incredulous that they can have failed to consult, or even notify of plans to open such a centre, and yet are planning on doing so on Monday 21st September.

It has been confirmed that a proposed new crossing of Shorncliffe Road to make access from Sandgate and West Folkestone to Folkestone West Railway Station has got the go-ahead and will be built this summer. The plan went to consulation with residents earlier this year.
Following consultation, the detailed plans have been slightly amended, moving the new crossing from one side of the Shorncliffe Road junction with Audley Road to the other, so that the crossing now is opposite St George's Church.

in 2019, I was approached by a local resident about whether there was the possibililty of a new pedestrian crossing across Shorncliffe Road to lead to the footpath entrance to Folkestone West train station. That's a route used by hundreds of Sandgate and West Folkestone residents - school pupils, commuters and others - each day.

A neighbour got in touch recently to mention that their are a number of streetlights that are out on the slip roads / roundabout at the Cheriton J12 M20 junction.
Essentially, the lights on the M20 and slip roads are the responsibility of Highways England, and those on the roundabout those of Kent Highways. I've contacted both, and have had the below response from Highways England today, saying they should be fixing at least some of the slip road lights on Monday. Progress I hope!

Kent County Council / Shepway District Council are "consulting" on a series of new Disabled Parking bays across Shepway, including two in Sandgate and one in Cheriton.
Although the bays have been installed following the request of a specific resident in each case, the bay is not for the applicant's exclusive use. Anyone with a valid badge will be able to park in a permanent disabled bay.
