Case Study - Sheerness Triangle

Sheerness Triangle Healthy Walk

Bulleted horizontal rule

The aim of the project, run by Groundwork Kent & Medway, was to formalise the Sheerness Triangle Healthy Walk and to make it a real entity in the minds of the communities of Sheerness and also to visitors of the area.

Groundwork was commissioned by Swale Forward and Swale Borough Council to recommend a variety of improvements around the town to provide pleasant walks and improve the environment. The project secured funding from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and work got under way at the Fleet and Festival Field.

The walk, which is 5 miles long, has seen a number of key improvements; including better access, improved seating and the planting of more trees and shrubs.

Members of the public, along with children from two local Primary schools, West Minster and St Edwards RC, helped with the planting of trees and shrubs along part of the route, this is now helping to attract more wildlife to the area. The children also added a splash of colour to the area by painting a colourful mural on the garages of the Medway Road entrance to the walk.
