UPDATE 20TH AUGUST: Please note, the deadline for the first round of this survey is 29th July. If you do not have chance to complete it by this time, you will be able to have your say at a later stage.

KCC have launched a Bus Improvement Plan public consultation. Please complete this short survey so that the views of Speldhurst Parish residents are included. For those of you who use buses to get to work or the shops, a reliable bus timetable is essential. More information from KCC below.

In March 2021, the government published a new National Bus Strategy which sets out a framework for recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic and a vision for future bus service improvements across the UK.

The strategy places a requirement on all Local Transport Authorities and Bus Operators to create a Bus Service Improvement Plan, which will act as the vision for how we are going to try to improve bus services in Kent in the next few years. This will then be used to help create Enhanced Partnership Schemes with bus operators, which will set the standards for all bus services running in the county.

We are excited about the opportunity this presents and want to ensure that our Improvement Plan reflects the views of Kent residents. We have therefore launched a public consultation and want to hear from users and residents about what would make bus travel more attractive. As we start to form our plan, we will continue to engage in this way and at the moment are inviting people to visit the website and answer a quick question identify the things that our Improvement Plan should focus on.
