What is KERB?

A Key Evidence Review Board on Traffic (or KERB for short) was brought together from several groups across the town including the umbrella group Streets Ahead.  Its aim is to help the Town Council and residents gain a fuller understanding of transport issues, and to help provide Wiltshire Council with a strong level of consensus on the outcomes the town wishes to achieve.

Consultation led by:

Cllr. Simon McNeill-Ritchie (Chair) – Simon is a former British diplomat, company chairman, social entrepreneur and academic. He was elected as an independent Town councillor in May 2017 and he currently chairs the Council’s Town Development, Business & Tourism Committee.

Trevor Bedeman – Trevor is a management consultant in data sharing, risk and statistical analysis. He is a founding partner of White-Stripe, which lobbies for pedestrian safety and against traffic intimidation.

Rob Brown – A keen rambler, Rob is Treasurer and Membership Secretary of West Wilts Rail Users Group and a Team Leader for Heart of Wessex community rail volunteers.

Nigel Gerdes – A retired electrical and electronic engineer, who worked in MoD project management, Nigel is a former Chair of Climate Friendly, Bradford of Avon, and a member of Wiltshire Walking for Health.

The full report and online survey is available on the Bradford on Avon Town council website here: https://bradfordonavontowncouncil.gov.uk/2019/01/a-town-that-works-public-consultation-on-boa-transport/

 

This consultation is a really important chance for everyone to go back to basics and say ‘what are our problems’ and ‘what do we really want’. New information will be provided as to how transport is changing around us – congestion, pollution, the huge growth of rail transport, opportunities for walking and cycling, and much better understandings of public safety, traffic intimidation, pollution, and how we are part of a wider region including Bath.

This approach has most recently been followed in the City of London and is leading to a major programme of change and improvement.

Don’t miss this opportunity to have your say.
