Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Housing and Planning

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

The report provides an introduction and background to the KCC consultation on the Draft Kent Local Transport Plan and sets out the contents of the consultation document and arrangements for making representations to the consultation, which ends on 18 September 2023.  The report then provides a draft representation to be submitted to the consultation on behalf of TWBC.

Decision:

RESOLVED – That the Kent County Council (KCC) consultation on the Local Transport Plan for Kent be noted, and the consultation questionnaire response attached at Appendix A and B of this report be formally submitted to the consultation on or before the deadline of 18 September 20232 be approved. 

Reasons for the decision:

By agreeing to submit the representation to the KCC consultation ensures that TWBC has fully engaged with the consultation and the opportunity provided by it to inform the emerging Local Transport Plan for Kent.

Alternative options considered:

Do nothing – Do not make representations to the consultation and consequently miss an important opportunity to input into the Local Transport Plan for Kent.

 

Agree to submit an alternative representation – This would require further discussion with officers and Councillors to inform the response which could mean the consultation deadline is not met.

Interests and Nature of Interests Declared:

No conflicts of interest were declared by any Member who was consulted in respect of this decision.
