You can have your say on borough council plans to cut car use to improve air quality in part of West Norfolk.
It has published its draft ideas which are focused on King’s Lynn Town Centre and the Gaywood Clock areas.
The proposals set out a number of aims including cutting car use, improving public transport, encouraging walking and cycling, and encouraging more people to work at home.
You can find the draft plans at west-norfolk.gov.uk/aqap-consultation along with a survey where you can have your say.
Drop-in sessions to leave your views in person will also be happening at:
5 February 2024 – Gaywood Library, River Lane, 4pm to 6pm
12 February 2024 – King’s Lynn Library, London Road, 4pm to 6pm
You can have your say until March 1. Once all the comments have been received, these will be considered and the air quality action plan will be finalised. The action plan will then need to be approved by the Government before being adopted by the council.
Michael de Whalley, the borough councillor responsible for Climate Change and Biodiversity, said: “Air quality is something that impacts us all and we should all have an interest in taking steps to improve it. We have assessed several options and have presented these in a draft air quality action plan.
“The recent peer challenge of the borough council identified that we should engage and consult with residents in how we deliver services. This is an excellent example of how residents can give their feedback and tell us if they think any other measures should be included.”
