I have submitted a question to The Leader of Surrey County Council’s ahead of full council next week.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has had a terrible impact on the lives and health of many Surrey residents, as well as severe economic consequences. But one of the consequences of the lock down also presents a rare opportunity to move towards our ambitious Climate Change target for transport of a reduction of in 60% emissions in the transport sector by 2035.
During the lock down, the quieter and less polluted streets have encouraged our residents to walk and given many who have never cycled before, a new confidence to get on their bikes. Over several weeks, the lockdown has resulted in a level of behaviour change that most transport strategies can only dream of.
recent Surrey Climate Change Strategy states that to achieve our goal of net
zero carbon by 2050, we must act today to reduce our carbon emissions. The
strategy identifies the reduction in our transport emissions asfundamental
to achieving this goal, stating the county will promote an integrated,
accessible, affordable and reliable public and active (walking or cycling)
A shift to more agile working, the need to socially distance when travelling to work and the appreciation of the health benefits of cycling and walking indicate that this change in travel behaviour could be long term. Many of my residents in Haslemere are very keen that this once in a lifetime opportunity is not missed.
could the Leader please explain how this council intends to ensure Surrey’s
transport network support the recovery from the COVID-19 emergency to provide a
lasting legacy of greener, safer transport?
the Leader outline how the Highways team are responding to new guidelines under
the Traffic Management Act 2004, and the recent statement by Grant Shapps which
expects local authorities to make significant changes to their road layouts to
give more space to cyclists and pedestrians. Such changes will help embed
altered behaviours and demonstrate the positive effects of active travel.’
This petition was given consideration for Haslemere:
“We the undersigned petition Surrey County Council to Reduce speed limit to 20mph on Critchmere Hill / Woolmer Hill Road. Better speed bumps. Reduce speed limit to 20mph. Red markings on road. School and nursery on this road.”
The discussion for this petition is included in the webcast below. The item begins 54 minutes in. My comment begins 1 hour 3 minutes in. (For some reason, part of what I say in the response gets cut off.)
Yesterday evening, I attended the first Surrey Climate Commission in Woking.
Surrey, like other parts of the country, must act to respond to the ever-increasing challenge of climate change. With reducing resources facing local Government there is a need for a wider strategy to achieve the necessary carbon reduction targets.
The Surrey Climate Commission is looking to meet this need by providing the necessary leadership and direction from a joint venture formed from experts from the academic and business community, public institutions and NGOs. Here are some slides from last night’s meeting.
