  • Ongoing plans to restore Swalecliffe Brook

Chief Customer Officer Katy Taylor said:  

“Our aim is to keep our customers informed and up to date with our activities in the area. We know there is room for improvement, and we are absolutely committed to meeting our customers’ expectations.  

“We are here to listen and be transparent – we want to understand our customers’ concerns and take action to tackle them. 

“We are really stepping up our efforts in the local area, and are keen to work closer with our stakeholders, especially those at Kent County Council and Canterbury City Council. We cannot achieve the change we need alone, and are excited to work with partners to deliver the change our customers’ want and deserve.”
