Whitstable and Swalecliffe seafront path plan proposed

Plans for a shared cyclist and pedestrian path along a stretch of Kent coastline have been put forward by a local authority.

Canterbury City Council said the 1.8 mile (3km) route would run between Swalecliffe and Whitstable.

The authority said the new path could lead to a reduction in traffic congestion and boost tourism.

The project is to be funded with £130,000 from the Big Lottery Fund and £20,000 from the city council.

The plans are currently on show at Whitstable Museum. A public consultation runs until 19 February.
