Kent County Council will be holding a public meeting tomorrow night to reveal plans about roadworks in Sea Street. The works are set to begin in May and will replace the existing potholed surface at a cost of £170,000. UKIP county councillors Brian MacDowall and Nicholas Bond had made the improvements their number one priority when they were elected in May last year. The work will take eight weeks and will be completed between 7am and 8.30pm each day. Tomorrow’s public meeting outlining the plans will start at 6pm, and will be held at the Beacon Church Hall in Sea Street. For more information call 03000418181 or visit www.kentgov.uk/highways.
Plans for a new solar electricity farm to power up to 15,500 homes will go on display today (Thursday). British Solar Renewables hope to install 2.6 metre high panels to generate 48 MW of clean energy in land next to the Thanet Way between Thornden Wood Road and Bullockstone Road. To find out more people can visit their public presentation at St. Andrew’s Church Hall in Hampton Pier Avenue from 2.30pm to 7pm.
