Congratulations! We've garnered 1,000 Signatures, Our first Milestone Achieved!!




12 Mar 2024


Dear Fellow Petitioners


We are thrilled to share some incredible news with you!


On a rainy Tuesday afternoon, on the 12th of March, the campaign for traffic calming measures on Frant Road and it's surrounding feeder streets, hit a pivotal milestone – our petition was endorsed by its 1,000th supporter!


First and foremost, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for your signatures, donations, and for sharing our campaign far and wide. Our collective effort is a testament to our community's commitment to making our streets safer for everyone, especially for those like our children and elderly residents, who are most vulnerable to the hazards of speeding vehicles.


With this significant achievement, we are now entitled to a debate in the Tunbridge Wells Borough Council. We will be working with Councillor Becki Bruneau on this matter.  We will keep you posted and share the date once it's scheduled, so that we can ensure we can gather the community and have supporters present during the council's debate.


It's important to recognize that our journey doesn't end here.  Although we've achieved a huge milestone together, our ultimate goal remains the installation of traffic calming measures throughout our area. Just this past week, thanks to Councillor Becki Bruneau's leadership and collaboration with our campaign, speed strips were installed in three key locations on Frant Road, including directly outside the Mead School, as well as on Broadwater Down. More to come and while it will take some time to analyze the data collected, this is a promising step forward.


The momentum we've built is invaluable, and now, more than ever, we need to harness it to drive change. I encourage you to share your story at FrantRoadSafety@gmail.com, and continue to spread the word about our campaign to drive up signatures. 


Meantime, we are also committed to documenting our journey and capturing individual voices from within our community. During the campaign, individuals from Frant Road and feeder roads like Birling, Bayham, Montecute, Broadwater Down, Warwick Park, and Forrest Road, amongst others, have come forward to share their experiences with speeding traffic. We plan to compile these stories into a report for Councillor Becki Bruneau, further emphasizing our community's need for safer streets. 


Again, thank you for your unwavering support. Together, we are making strides towards a safer and more peaceful community for all.


Emma and Toni, Co-Founders, Frant Road Safety Coalition
