So the Herne Bay beach hut consultation was “long” and “public” and “very comprehensive”. I wonder whether the report of that consultation is also “long” and “public” and “very comprehensive”… if anyone knows where this report is, do let me know, and I’ll pop it on this website for all to see.
Extra beach huts look set to become a reality after council bosses voted to allow another 32 to be built. Members of Canterbury City Council’s ruling executive committee voted to allow planning applications to begin, after a long public consultation on where to put them.
Speaking at a meeting of the council’s executive in the Canterbury Guildhall, Tankerton councillor Neil Baker said:
“We’re now down to 32 sites after a very comprehensive consultation. They are all genuine infill sites.”
The new huts would be built by council contractors and the land would remain in council ownership. They sites earmarked include 15 in Herne Bay, 12 on Spa Esplanade West and three on Spa Esplanade East – and 17 in Whitstable. The decision now goes to the planning stage.
