Canterbury City Council: St Georges Street and Canterbury Market consultation 10 May – 21 June 2021

Canterbury City Council (CCC) is consulting on proposals for a £1,000,000 major revamp of St George’s Street in Canterbury, designed to improve the paving, seating and street lighting on St George’s Street, to provide cycle racks, and to plant 14 new trees and remove five. CCC are also considering options for the space currently used by the market and the possibility of accommodating different kinds of street traders as well as creating a fully‐flexible space to host events, attractions and activities.

The consultation runs from 10 May to 21 June. CCC originally started consultation on this at the start of last year. However, the process stalled and wasn’t completed due to Covid‐19. Even if you gave CCC your views in the original consultation, CCC are asking you to complete the form again.

More information about the consultation can be found here. Please note the proposed changes are detailed within the consultation questionnaire.
