Updated February 2016

Thank you for taking the time to give us your views on the Kent Environment Strategy. The Consultation Report is now available to download from the ‘Summary Results’ section below. This report provides a summary of the responses received through the consultation and provides feedback as to how these comments have been addressed.

The focus of work across partners will now be on developing the Implementation Plan, which will detail the activities that will take place to deliver the strategy and its priorities.

As a partnership document, it is anticipated that the final Strategy will be taken through partner organisations’ decision making processes with a view to launch the final strategy in Summer 2016.


Original Consultation Text: 

Kent faces unprecedented growth and change over the coming decades. Kent Environment Strategy 2015: A strategy for environment, health and economy recognises and addresses the challenges and opportunities that this will bring.  Through building on the successes of the last strategy and working in partnership, Kent partners can collectively harness the many opportunities to create positive health and economic outcomes.  

Working together, our task is to continue to support much needed economic growth whilst protecting and enhancing our natural and historic environment and creating and sustaining communities that are vibrant, healthy and resilient. A shared vision and successful collaborations will result in actions that will ensure that Kent truly is a place of choice to live, work and visit.
