Replacement and repair of Lydd Bus Shelters


Following approaches to Cllr Clive Goddard (Shepway District and Lydd Town Councillor) by residents of Lydd Parish and fellow members of Lydd Town Council regarding the condition of some of the bus shelters in the Parish, he contacted local businesses and other organisations carrying out works in Lydd to request donations from them to use for match funding so that additional money in the form of an annual grant from Kent County Council could be applied for.

Cllr Goddard said “I was delighted that Brett Aggregates, Brett Concrete, Day Aggregates and Lydd Airport all came back with positive responses and donated money to Lydd Town Council.  The Town Clerk and I gathered the required evidence, took photographs and completed the grant application form to submit to Kent County Council on behalf of Lydd Town Council and I am pleased to say that our application was successful”

The work has now been completed and there is a smart new navy blue bus shelter outside the Post Office/Londis shop at the junction of Lydd High Street and Vinelands and the bus shelter at the Coast at the junction of The Parade and Derville Road, Dungeness which had suffered from wind damage and was leaning over has been straightened and strengthened.

Lydd Town Council and Cllr Clive Goddard would like to express their sincere thanks to Brett Aggregates, Brett Concrete, Day Aggregated, Lydd Airport and Kent County Council for their financial contributions which made this work possible to improve the lives of the community of Lydd Parish.
