Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council Air Quality Consultation

Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council has a duty to assess the air quality within the Borough. They aim, by working with various partners to improve the air quality for all.

The biggest cause of poor air quality in the UK is down to car fumes. Opting to drive less will help improve local air quality, but if you have to drive, there are things you can do to reduce your emissions. 

The Borough Council has drafted an updated Air Quality Action Plan for tackling air pollution across the borough and, as part of the public consultation process, invites you to view the draft documents and answer a questionnaire about the councils proposed Air Quality Action Plan measures.  At the end of the questionnaire there is an opportunity to have your say on what additional measures you believe would help to reduce air pollution in the borough.

The consultation closes on 19th April 2021.

Vision Zero: The Road Safety Strategy for Kent 2020 - 2026

Kent County Council are consulting on their draft five year Road Safety Strategy for Kent and our 30 year vision. 

Their ambitious 'Vision Zero' aims for zero, or as close as possible, fatalities on Kent’s roads each year by 2050.

To achieve Vision Zero, they propose adopting the ‘Safe Systems’ approach, which is rooted in the belief that every traffic death reflects a failure in the system, and that none are acceptable. Safe Systems puts the human being at its core, accepting that even the most conscientious person may make a mistake at some point.

The goal of Safe Systems is to ensure that these mistakes do not lead to a crash or, if a crash does occur, it is sufficiently controlled to not cause a death or a life-changing injury.

The success of this strategy will depend on engagement with Kent’s communities to work together towards safer roads, towns and villages.

Kent County Council need your views to ensure their proposals meet the needs and expectations of Kent’s residents, businesses and communities.

The consultation closes on 15th March 2021.
