    By County Councillor Tim Prater in Response to Spokes East Kent Cycle Campaign Questionnaire

    Spokes East Kent Cycle Campaign have sent a questionnaire to all local Kent County Council candidates asking their views on cycling locally and how they would seek to improve it. Their questions, and my answers, are below.

    1. Widespread 20 mph speed limits are increasingly being implemented across the country in places that people live, work, and shop. They provide a cost-effective means to reducing the number and severity of casualties and make our streets more accessible to pedestrians and cyclists whilst having smoothing traffic flow. Kent County Council regularly receive requests for widespread 20mph limits to be implemented. Will you act to support the adoption of widespread 20mph limits? If so, which specific actions do you plan to take? If you do not support widespread 20mph limits please explain why not.

    Award winning Kent political journalist Paul Francis has tipped the Liberal Democrats as likely to hold all its existing seats on Kent County Council - including the Folkestone West seat snatched from the Conservatives in 2009 by Tim Prater.

    In his analysis of the prospects for the main parties in the forthcoming Kent County Council elections, Paul Francis sees the likely outcome that the Conservatives will retain control of the County Council but with a "significantly reduced majority", and that the Liberal Democrats are likely to hold its existing seats.

    Kent County Council are finalising proposals to remove over 3,000 streetlights across Kent, including over 200 in Shepway.

    Kent justifies this decision (and they claim it is a decision, not a consultation) on the basis that it saves energy and money. They add that when the County Council budget was consulted on, many people backed the view that unnecessary streetlights, such as those on Thanet Way, should be removed.
