  • Gypsy Traveller site, 30th September
    A traveller site has sprung up in the field next to Larkey Valley woods over the past few weeks. Today more travellers have arrived with horses. Is this settlement legal? Are the council aware of this? Is the situation being monitored?

  • Top of Highsted Road Sittingbourne, 28th September
    I am asking you please to put in a footpath along the top end of this road. There are many schoolchildren that use this road along with others. It is only a matter of time before someone else loses a life along there. The traffic is horrendous and made worse by the Eden Village development and thru road that now adjoins the top of Highsted Road. Emergency vehicles and heavy traffic now go along there. The footpath runs out at the last house on the left hand side. Please get this path instated it is now a matter of life and death for these children and others. It has taken petitions and one young lad from Fulston School which adjoins Highsted Road tried to get a footpath made and took it to the local paper but all too no avail. What does it take from KCC Highways to realize just how dangerous this road is for children and others. A footpath is needed before a fatality. Thank you -

  • Pedestrian Crossing, 28th September
    One of the lamp is not working and the other one is obscured by an overhanging branch so neither light is visiable from one direction. The trees also mean that this crossing is very poorly illuminated by the street lights after dark and does not feel safe to use. I have seen other beacons locally with a ring of bright LEDs around them. Would it be possible to fit these at this location please.

  • Drivers not slowing for roundabout with pedestrian crossing immediately round corner, 26th September
    I regularly walk my dog and my daughter in her pushchair through this route and twice in the last two days i have nearly been hit by cars approaching from new hythe lane way and turning left at the roundabout. This is not a busy roundabout however drivers are failing to slow down and are driving extremely fast round not realising there is a pedestrian crossing with an island in the road.the gentleman today thought he had done no wrong and wound his window down shouting abuse.Bearing in mind i have a dog and buggy i would take my time checking before crossing to keep us all safe , it is irrelevant though when drivers are not slowing down when a pedestrian crossing is so close to the roundabout.

  • Gutter Drains Blocked, 25th September
    Most (?all) of the drains in York Road between Wincheap and New Street are completely or *nearly* completely blocked: this leads to huge puddles the width of York road at the wincheap end, even with 'medium' rain - when the heavy rain, it's impassable on foot. This isn't recent, but it has got worse. Thanks.

  • Road dangerous at night?, 25th September
    This section of road was widened into a dual carriageway many years ago, and several years after, was reduced back to single carriageway. This was achieved by the erection of posts with reflectors mounted in the lanes that were no longer to be used. I have used this road many times during the day, but recently travelled it during darkness for the first time, and was surprised by how unsettling it was. In the dark, the posts seem quite insubstantial, the reflectors are poor and seem dirty and a couple of posts are damaged or missing. Knowing the road, I wasn't too bothered but I wondered how safe the road would be for a driver making a first trip in the dark, especially negotiating the junction with the B2079. Would the council consider bulking up the barrier closing off the unused sections of the carriageway and adding more substantial reflectors? This is a personal plea from a private motorist and if I am told that there have been no accidents along this stretch, then I will be happy to be told to sod off and mind my own business. Thank you

  • Faulty street light, 24th September
    This street light is located in a 30mph area just prior to a sharp and steep bend leading down into Alkham village - it switches on and off randomly which is a potential danger to drivers of vehicles along this stretch particularly if the area is unknown to the driver. This is a very short section of the road to be lit at night due,it would appear, to the danger of the bend.
