Otterpool Park public engagement to continue in June 2017

12th June 2017

Local residents, people who work in the area and interested organisations are being encouraged to attend the next series of public engagement sessions for the proposed Otterpool Park garden town.

The next public drop-ins will take place between Thursday 22 and Saturday 24 June 2017 in various locations around Folkestone, Hythe and Romney Marsh. There will be presentations from the consultant team at each session, giving more details on the design process and how planning will progress. Other events are being planned for local businesses, schools and colleges.

Over 500 people attended the first engagement sessions last year, sharing their views and concerns about Otterpool Park.

Andy Jarrett, spokesman for Otterpool Park, said:

“We were pleased to see so many local people attend the sessions last year, and the feedback we’ve received will help to shape the proposed garden town. We hope to see even more people at the next events. Residents and other members of the community can see how their contributions so far have informed ideas, and importantly, can find out more about how we are addressing areas of concern for infrastructure, housing type and green space.”
