Work is underway on Canterbury council’s city centre security bollards scheme, which will see 105 bollards installed at 18 locations.


Across the 18 sites there will be a mix of automated, manually-retractable and static bollards.

The £789,000 project is being put in place on the advice of counter-terrorism police to stop a hostile vehicle being driven at pedestrians. The council say there is no specific intelligence pinpointing Canterbury as being at risk. This is a precautionary measure.


The council will write to nearby residents and businesses in advance of work starting at each site.
