The Planning Policy Team Leader presented the report which set out the Council’s Movement Strategy.

The aim of the Strategy was to co-ordinate all the issues and needs to ensure that movement across the District was easier, healthier, safer and sustainable. The Strategy showed that the Council wanted to work proactively in the right partnerships and set clear priorities regarding all movement. The document also set clear priorities for the Council to work towards and set goals that were achievable and measurable.

The strategy set out priorities for movement for the following 5-10 years. These included health and wellbeing, cycling and walking, public transport and sustainable movement.

Members discussed the report and associated appendices and expressed some concern that the improved transport experience would require further consultation with Kent County Council. Members were also informed of various projects that would encourage behaviour change around the District.
