Highways England have announced that the Lower Thames Crossing statutory consultation phase will start next Wednesday 10th October and run until Thursday 20th December. As previously, there is no need to respond rapidly – it is better to read as much of the (vast) accompanying documentation as you can and then include everything that you want to say. There will be a Highways England public information event at Shorne Village Hall on Saturday 3rd November (midday to 6pm) and others at e.g. Bluewater 20th October (9-9) and 21st October (11-5), Cascades 1st November (2-9) and Gravesham Civic Centre 21st November (2-9). The Parish Council will provide more information once we have been able to read the documentation ourselves.
