KCC's Strategic Planning have issued a report on proposals to build an extra railway station on the Dover - Ramsgate line which serves Deal, called "Thanet Parkway".
KCC now proposes to go ahead with some urgency. Ais an early stage in their public consultation, KCC's Transport Strategic Planning Team will give a short presentation as part of Deal Town Council's Full Council meeting next Monday 19th January 2015 at 7.15.
As part of the formal meeting it gives only limited possibilities for public participation, especially by non-councillors, so the DTC Transport WG will have an informal discussion of the proposals and any implications for Deal from 6-7pm to the Council meeting in the Committee Room.
Anyone is welcome to attend and join in.
The main local concerns are that a Station outside Ramsgate with a large car park might attract so many customers from local stations as to undermine the viability of the current level of train services at Deal and Sandwich.
