Sandwich Town Council - Consultations
Throughout the year both Dover District Council and Kent County Council hold consultations on matters of interest to the people of Sandwich. Check out the individual websites for full details.
Here are links to ongoing consultations:
KENT.GOV.UK BUS FEEDBACK
During last summer’s Big Conversation with residents, many people told KCC that they didn’t know who to give feedback to about bus services.
To help clarify this, KCC have launched a Bus Feedback Portal.
It includes information about how to make a formal complaint or compliment about bus services and who to contact in the event that bus users experience problems.
It also includes a feedback form for residents to let KCC know about their experiences of using buses and the quality of service provided. A link to the form is below.
KCC will use the feedback to prepare a quarterly report which will provide them with a greater understanding of what types of problems bus users experience and to spot trends about the areas or on which services they arise. KCC will use this information to inform the conversations that they have with their bus operators through Quality Bus Partnerships or more generally and help improve services for bus users.

Kent County Council’s Waste Disposal Strategy 2017-2035
As you may be aware, Kent County Council’s Waste Disposal Strategy 2017-2035 was adopted last year. The Strategy presents the overall ‘Ambition’ for KCC as the Waste Disposal Authority, as well as a series of priorities and supporting objectives. The requirement now is to embed its delivery into every aspect of the waste disposal service.
KCC has undertaken a review of its Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) policies and as part of this are consulting on a proposal to charge for the disposal of non-household waste (soil, rubble, hardcore and plasterboard) at the HWRCs.
The consultation went live on Thursday 6th September 2018 for a period of 8 weeks until Thursday 1st November 2018. Please visit www.kent.gov.uk/wasteconsultation and have your say.
Dover District Council Survey
Have Your Say on Parks, Sports and Open Spaces Provision
Residents across the Dover district can take part in an online survey to help map out the future of its parks and open spaces, and children can have their say too with a survey specially designed to capture the views of young people.
Message from Matthew Scott, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Kent
‘How safe do you feel where you live?’
That is the one of the key questions Matthew Scott, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Kent, is asking residents this summer.
Mr Scott said: ‘I set Kent Police’s priorities based on the things people tell me matter to them. My Annual Policing Survey is a key way in which I get to hear what you think about your police force. I want to know what you think Kent Police does well and what it could do better.
I’m responsible for ensuring Kent Police provides an effective and efficient service so I’m asking you, plain and simple, to rate how safe you feel in your community and also what to extent you think you get value for money.’
Mr Scott added: ‘I’ve had a tremendous response from those I’ve met at big public events like the Kent County Show and the Kent Police Open Day so far this summer but I want as many people as possible to take the opportunity to have their say. Based on the results of last year’s survey, I took the decision to put more money into recruiting up to 200 more police officers, so your views really can make a difference.’
The survey, which only takes a couple of minutes to complete, is available at:
A hard-copy leaflet, and a large print version, are also available on request.
Questions about people’s gender, where they live, age and ethnicity have been included to enable the PCC to spot trends among different communities.
