Commonplace comes to Kensington and Chelsea

05 July 2018

A new consultation is giving residents and visitors an easier way to have their say on changes on the streets of Kensington and Chelsea. The Local Implementation Plan aims to support transport strategy. So whether it’s a pedestrian crossing, cycling facilitates or traffic calming measures, you can tell Kensington and Chelsea Council at the click of a button.

Commonplace is an online consultation system that links in with Twitter and Facebook and uses a map to allow users to select any point in the borough and tell us what they like or dislike about it. This means that it can give much more specific information about an area and what people’s views are in a simple way.

Residents and visitors simply have to go to https://rbkctransport.commonplace.is and click on the area they want to comment on. It means not only a fast and easy way to have your say, but also a far more accurate way. The deadline to comment on the Local Implementation Plan is Friday 7 September.

Welcoming the new way of consulting, Cllr Will Pascall, Lead Member for Streets, Planning and Transport said: “We want to hear from as many people as possible and we want to make it easier to find out people’s views. Changes to our streets affects everyone and people rightly want to have their say. I hope residents and visitors alike will make use of Commonplace to tell us what they think.”
