Thursday, May 6, is election day in Kent.
Seats on the county council and Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells councils will all be contested, along with the role of Kent police and crime commissioner.
CPRE Kent is well aware of the need to rejuvenate our economy in the wake of the mayhem caused by Covid-19, but we firmly believe the county’s natural and built environment should not be sacrificed in this push.
CPRE has produced a manifesto calling on those elected to:
- promote countryside solutions to the climate emergency
- build a planning system that works for people, nature and the environment
- deliver a comprehensive bus network for rural communities
- develop an ‘all-in’ Deposit Return Scheme for drinks containers
The pandemic has shown how critical our countryside is to all of us. Next month’s elections will give politicians of all persuasions the opportunity to show they have witnessed that value are alert to the possibilities as well as the problems ahead.
