Air Quality Action Plan Update Consultation

We’re updating our air quality action plan and want to hear your feedback.

The current air quality action plan ends in December, and we’re planning how we’ll continue to improve air quality in your area from 2023 to 2028.

The updated plan will focus on improving air quality across the whole borough, as well as in our six air quality management areas (AQMAs).

The updated plan outlines how we’ll:
- Set up more car clubs and new bike hire schemes
- Install more electric vehicle charge points
- Work with Kent County Council to improve bus services and public transport infrastructure
- Explore traffic solutions such as creating one-way streets or installing chicanes to reduce or slow traffic in our AQMAs.

You can read the committee report for the AQAP consultation here.

To have your say, visit and complete the online survey to take part in the consultation. If you would like an alternative format, or need technical help, email us at

Survey takes around 4 - 8 minutes to complete.

Survey closes 15 January 2022.

Once we receive your comments, we’ll feed these into the proposed plan before finalising it next year.
