Dear Kent County Council,
Within a developer's document related to the proposed "Land North of Marden" garden community, it states:
"Kent County Council are proposing to bring forward an improvement scheme to the A229 Linton Road / A229 Linton Hill / B2163 (Linton crossroads). The improvement comprises creation of a third lane on the A229 Linton Hill approach to the junction, which will allow for ‘left-only’, ‘ahead-only’ and ‘ahead and right turn’ lanes. "
Please send me the following information on this improvement scheme:
- A copy of all communications between KCC Highways and "DHA Planning" and/or "DHA Transport" about this scheme, redacting where necessary from January 2019 to now;
- Information on this scheme being "brought forward";
- Any designs, schematics or plans; and
- Data from traffic assessments such as a Transport Assessment.
Note: I am only interested in how this scheme relates to Marden.
I am making this request under the EIR as it involves land development.
