The Parish Council will be holding a public meeting at the Village Hall on Friday 12th February at 7.30pm to present our analysis of the information contained within the consultation proposals, the implications to Shorne, and to advise how we should respond to the proposals.

You should also try to attend the Highways England’s Public Information Event which will take place in the Village Hall from 10.30am to 4.00pm on Saturday 6th February. Parish Councillors will be present throughout the day to discuss the proposals and your questions and concerns.

In the meantime, the Council requests that you should hold off from completing the Highways England questionnaire for the moment until we all have more information. We all need to be careful over how these are completed in order to avoid giving any impression that we support the proposals.

If you are unable to attend the session at the Village Hall, there are others, including the following:
11.00am – 7.00pm Thursday 4 February at Cascades Leisure Centre, Thong Lane;
11.00am – 7.00pm Friday 5 February at Riverside Centre, Dickens Road, Gravesend;
11.00am – 7.00pm Friday 12 February and 10.30am – 4.00pm Saturday 13 February at the Civic Centre.

The deadline for responses to the consultation is 24th March.

For further details of the proposals published in the Lower Thames Crossing Route Options consultation document on 26th January 2016, see our Lower Thames Crossing page here.

Get Involved at Crabbles Bottom - 13th February & 19th March

Did you know that the Parish owns about 27 acres of woodland, orchard, and open meadow between Crutches Lane and the end of Bowesden Lane?  We would like to develop the area as an amenity for the Parish, maintaining the old apple trees and perhaps planting new ones, and opening up the woodland to provide easier access to the enclosed meadows.  To this end we need some energetic volunteers!  For further information, click here.
