139468Photo #139468Re-position crossing to where people actually want to cross. The current position is counter productive. The majority of pedestrians want to go up or come from St Dunstans St. They have no desire to walk up North St. Many tend to just cross at the roundabout to the annoyance of drivers. This is a 20 zone so it should be quite safe to put the crossing much closer to the roundabout.Temporary closure:

139251Photo #139251If Harbour Street is closed then we should consider how people can cycle from Tankerton into Whistable. Suggestions: 1 Allow cycles to use the pedestrianised Habour Street? 2. Use Sea Wall? 3 A route via Woodlawn/Bexley/Vicoria Streets?Cycleway:

139151Photo #139151Open up a route for people on bikes. Currently there is a very restricted gate for pedestrians only. This would immediately allow people to cycle along Preston Parade and bypass Faversham Road and a big chunk of Joy Lane. It would contribute to a motor traffic free route that others have put forward from Seasalter to Whitstable. Ultimately it could be part of a motor vehicle free route from Whitstable to Faversham.Cycleway:

135633Photo #135633Add a cycle way along the seafront from Whistable to Seasalter. This would enable people to cycle into Whitstable without being put off by speeding cars on Joy Lane and Canterbury road. Therefore freeing up space by reducing the number of cars that need to drive into Whitstable for more space redistribution measures.Cycleway:
Problem

135618Photo #135618This road is used as a main rat run for through traffic. Closing it would vastly reduce traffic in the estates near by and make walking and cycling more present. Closure of this top section of road would not case an issue with the bus route that uses the bottom section.Temporary closure:

133196Photo #133196The road between the park and ride to the south and the cross roads with Upper Chancery Lane is plenty wide enough to put in cycle lanes on both sides of the road.

124172Photo #124172Whitstable High Street should be one way west to east (with pavements widened) and the Harbour Street one way east to west pedestrianised.
