"It is with great sadness that Maidstone Borough Council has learnt of the death of Brian Mortimer former Liberal Democrat Councillor for Coxheath and Mayor of Maidstone.
All who knew and worked with Brian will I’m sure have – like me - many memories full of Brian’s joyful time as Mayor and his stoicism as he continued to represent his constituents through a period of challenging ill-health until May 2018.
Our thoughts are with his wife Dianne and all of the family at this sad time."
Alison Broom - Chief Executive
Throughout the year we want the views of residents, businesses and other members of the community on a range of topics.
Formal public consultation on the Marden Neighbourhood Development plan will commence on 14 June 2019 and close at 5pm on 26 July 2019. Representations received after the closing date will not be considered.

Licensed Vehicle Surveys & Assessment (LVSA) has been commissioned by Maidstone Borough Council’s licensing department to undertake a Hackney Carriage Demand Study. As part of the study, LVSA are undertaking consultation with a range of stakeholders, including members of the trade, members of the public, Council departments, political representatives, rail and bus station operators, hospitals, licensed premises, police, chamber of commerce, tourism and elderly representatives, user group representatives and locality representatives. We would be grateful for any comments and views you may have on Hackney Carriages within the Maidstone Borough Council area.
It is important, for this study, to distinguish between different types of licensed vehicles. For the avoidance of doubt, Hackney Carriages may be flagged down or Hailed in the street, as well as hired at a taxi rank and obtained through advanced booking. Hackney Carriages have a ‘TAXI’ sign on the roof. Other licensed vehicles are Private Hire Vehicles often known as mini-cabs. Private Hire Vehicles may only be hired through advanced booking.
Please send your comments to LVSA.co.uk by Sunday 30th June 2019.
