Making the borough greener

Closes 23 Aug 2021

Opened 21 Jul 2021

Overview

Welcome to your second Citizens’ Panel survey and thank you for agreeing to be a part of the Panel community. When you joined the Panel the majority of you told us that the environment was an important issue for you. This survey is, therefore, on the environment and making Kensington and Chelsea greener. The Council declared a Climate Emergency in late 2019, adopted the more stringent World Health Organisation (WHO) air quality guideline values and has recently produced its Green Plan which sets out the five environmental and sustainability priorities and goals:

  • Becoming Carbon Neutral and tackling Climate Change
  • Improving Air Quality
  • Tackling Fuel Poverty
  • Minimising Waste
  • Protecting and enhancing Biodiversity

The Green Plan pulls together existing, new and developing environmental related strategies, plans and key targets into one simple document, so that we can give ourselves the best possible chance of meeting our environmental goals.

The scale and pace required to deliver the Green Plan requires significant and bold action, and for everyone to be involved: residents, community groups, schools, businesses, and the Council, to build a greener borough and a sustainable future.

Why we are consulting

This survey will help with the development, design and delivery of new action plans for addressing these priorities, especially the climate emergency, air quality and biodiversity. The goals set are ambitious, and the scale, complexity and urgency of the challenge ahead is unprecedented and we must, therefore, meet it with an unprecedented and sustained level of focus, effort, and pace. The Council cannot do this alone and is committed to engage, empower, and support everyone in the borough to get involved. We, therefore, want to hear your views and ideas on how we can collectively act on these issues within Kensington and Chelsea and how we can work together to achieve this.

Please complete your survey by 23rd August 2021. To thank you, and in recognition of your time, all those that complete a survey will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two £50 Amazon vouchers. We will also make a donation on your behalf to the Mayor's charity for each completed survey.
