Priority One: Build More Homes

  • Adopt the new local plan so we can ensure that genuinely affordable housing is delivered – particularly homes for social rent.
  • Ensure the right mix of housing to rent and buy is provided with supporting infrastructure, while protecting land not identified for development.
  • Create a small social housing scheme to build and showcase energy efficient and accessible homes on a council owned site.
  • Support local businesses and the revival of our towns and village centres by creating a business-friendly environment.
  • Bring more jobs to the Borough paying better wages, with growth in new inclusive apprenticeship opportunities.
  • Grow our creative sector, arts, leisure and tourist scenes to help our Borough thrive.

Priority Three: Make Our Communities Greener

  • Install solar panels on all Council owned buildings.
  • Produce our own clean green energy to help decarbonise Tunbridge Wells.
  • Reduce traffic gridlock with improved walking and cycling routes and cheaper, more frequent and reliable public transport.

Priority Four:  Make Our Communities Safer

  • Work with the police and local communities to increase resources available to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.
  • Ensure women and girls and other targeted groups are safer, especially at night, with improved lighting and CCTV, safer travel and a more visible police presence.
  • Remove graffiti quickly and support the development of litter picking groups across the Borough.

Priority Five:  Support Residents, Protect Public Services

  • Manage finances well and provide the services you need.
  • Make permanent the £100k Community Support Fund.
  • Bring under-used community buildings back into use or dispose of them, investing in new, more appropriate community buildings.
