Change of Name for Shepway District Council

An extraordinary meeting of Shepway District Council on Wednesday 17 January agreed to a change of name for the local authority.

From the beginning of the 2018/19 financial year it will take the name of the area's two principal towns and be known as Folkestone and Hythe District Council.

The change was proposed by Council Leader, Councillor David Monk and supported by the required majority of at least two-thirds of the councillors at the meeting. 18 councillors supported the proposal, 3 voted against and 5 abstained from voting.

The name of Shepway was adopted in 1974 following local government reorganisation. The Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government will now be informed.
