Footway resurfacing works will be undertaken in Luton Road for 3 weeks from Thursday, 30 July between 7am to 7pm.
The south western side of the footway from Castle Road to number 180 Luton Road will be resurfaced by Medway Council’s contractor, VolkerHighways.
The small section of Leonard Road off of Luton Road will also be closed for the storage of materials. Parking restrictions will remain in force during the duration of these works and failure to abide by the restrictions in place may result in vehicle lifting equipment being used if necessary.
If your property has a cellar well that is within the footway, please note that VolkerHighways will not be carrying out any works to these and will just work around them.
These works are being undertaken as part of Medway Council’s commitment to maintaining and improving the highway network under the Annual Highway Improvement Programme.
A former housing shelter for elderly people will be refurbished and extended to become a foyer for vulnerable young people after plans were recently approved by Medway Council.
MHS Homes put forward a planning application seeking permission to build two additional one-bed living units and to remodel the frontage of the empty Russell House to include a covered walkway and glazed communal rooms for the young residents.
The refurbishment work will also see new fencing installed along the perimeter of the site, soft landscaping features and a gated stairwell leading up to Magpie Hall Road.
