Lower Thames Crossing Community Impacts Consultation
Highways England carried out a Community Impacts Consultation, as they prepare to submit their application for a Development Consent Order later this year. The consultation gave people the opportunity to review and comment on their plans to build and operate the Lower Thames Crossing, and how they propose to reduce our impact on the local community and environment. Topics included changes to traffic, air quality, noise and vibration, as well as the impact of the new crossing on the environment and landscape. The consultation ran from 14 July to 8 September 2021. You can read Shorne Parish Council’s response to the consultation by clicking on the link below.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Precautions
The rate of COVID-19 infections still remains quite high, although it appears that the vaccination programme has helped to keep hospitalisation and mortality rates relatively low. But parishioners are encouraged to remain vigilant and continue to respect the rules and social distancing guidelines. Residents are advised to stay up to date and continue to follow the latest precautions published at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ and government advice published at https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response.
If you are able to, please support those more vulnerable residents who may be housebound or unable to collect their prescriptions or get to the shops.
