Notes on a strategy for Faversham’s future. As is the Town of Kings, this is a work in progress.
Harder working, longer lasting & better looking policy outcomes.
Consistency as far as possible with the existing policy framework.
BUT challenging where views are inconsistent.
Acting to make change happen.
Organisations – education, business, healthcare, religious, sporting, cultural.
Member of Parliament – a national champion.
Independent experts: Academy of Urbanism, Design South East, English Heritage…
Through continuous conversation:
– the Faversham Conversation.
Online and face-to-face.
Spatial: what goes where and how does it all connect together.
Town-wide, not just the town centre.
For the next decade, not just the next year.
1. Engage the participants.
2. Design the process – likely to include meetings, online comments, questionnairing, presentation/exhibition; then repeat…
3. Then begin.
More pedestrian crossings eg West Street, Dark Hill, South Street – St Ann’s. Other wards?
More walk to school.
More public life.
Better for business.
