Kent Rights of Way improvement plan

The scheme involves upgrading of footpaths and quiet roads to create a Loose Valley “Greenway”. This provides a shared use pedestrian/cycle route between the Loose Valley and Maidstone Town Centre, serving locations such as schools along the route.

The scheme will reduce the revenue costs of maintaining the existing rights of way network in the area. By shifting some trips away from car, the scheme will help address transport congestion in the Loose area and in turn help unlock housing sites which otherwise may be unviable because of the additional traffic likely to be generated.
