Public feedback informs next steps of Ramsgate’s Highways Improvement Scheme

200 members of the public got involved in the Future High Street Fund’s Ramsgate highways improvement scheme consultation. Comments were made either by completing an online survey, attending a drop-in session, or by emailing the project team. 

Over 81% of people who took part agreed or strongly agreed with the proposed scheme. Over 75% agreed or strongly agreed that the scheme will enhance the environment, create a more inviting character for the harbour area, and reduce speed limits. 

Cllr Ash Ashbee, Leader of Thanet District Council said:

“We would like to thank everyone who took the time to provide their feedback. There were a number of key messages that came forward as part of the consultation, which the council will investigate further. These suggestions included:

  • The extension of the 20 mph zone
  • The position of the crossing point at Madeira Walk
  • Further discussion needed in relation to the bus laybys. 

“Whilst other comments were outside the remit of this scheme, they are beneficial and of value to the various other activities that are taking place as part of Ramsgate Future over the coming years.”

Full details of the consultation results can be found in a report presented to the Joint Transport Board on Tuesday 14 December 2021.
