This website invites you to take part in in discussions and consultations that interest you in Kingston. By having your say, you can help influence decision making on local issues that matter to you.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic we had to pause our regular engagement with you to provide essential support to residents, helping vulnerable people across the borough. Many of our staff changed their roles to make sure we could support our residents and we worked alongside some amazing community groups and volunteer organisations to keep everyone safe. It was a real team effort.

While there is still a threat to public health, we remain ready to step up our support at any time. However, as long as we work together to keep the situation under control, we can now return to working with you to shape the future for Kingston and how we may all live and work.

We have a number of opportunities for you to tell us what you think, and get involved with shaping that future now and over the coming weeks and months.


Live and open until 14 September - Kingston Residents Covid Impact Survey

We’ve all felt the impact of COVID-19. We’d like you to tell us how the last few months have affected you, your family and friends. Sharing your experience will help us understand what support we can offer in future. Please take the survey at

Live and open for 6 months - Low Traffic Neighbourhoods

Four new, temporary low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs) will be introduced across the borough from next month to help tackle through-traffic (‘rat-runs’) in residential neighbourhoods and maximise space for pedestrians and cyclists. They will also play a vital role in improving air quality, delivering safer roads and promoting active travel. Our dedicated LTNs consultation page is open and answers to some of your questions available at

Live and open until 02 October - Have your say on the future of housing in the borough

A national housing crisis was going on long before the pandemic but the need for sustainable homes for the future is even more critical as people reflect on living arrangements and reconsider their options. We are at the early stages of developing a new approach to the housing we need in the borough. We want to offer genuine improvements to housing options for residents. We need to know your views to help us do that.

Live and open until 21 October - Reimagining Kingston’s Libraries

Libraries are at the heart of our community. We want them to be places where you want to be - and offer things of interest and value to communities across Kingston. We’d really like them to play a role in all our futures. We will be asking you to share your ideas on how we can make this happen.


We will keep this website updated with the latest information on community engagement projects and consultations. Why not sign up so we can keep you in the loop and you can get involved in projects you're interested in.

If you have any questions about how we consult, or if there are issues you'd like to see discussed on this website or as part of our wider community engagement work, please let us know below.

We look forward to engaging with you!

    Thank you

    Thank you to everyone who responded to our surveys and attended our workshops on the future of our green spaces, our ongoing relationship with the voluntary and community sector and our proposals to introduce a 20mph speed limit across the borough. We’ve had over 1000 responses to these surveys and over 450 people attended our workshops and events. We are crunching the numbers and reading through responses at the moment. Feedback will be available on the portal soon.

    Coming up

    Over the next few weeks we will be asking for your thoughts on our ‘Healthy Streets’ proposals. In January 2020, Kingston Town, Surbiton, South of the Borough and Malden and Coombe Neighbourhood Committees considered reports outlining the findings of a Healthy Streets study undertaken in the borough.

    The aim of the study was to identify potential locations and measures for improving sustainable transport, in order to reduce through-traffic and encourage walking, cycling and public transport use in the area. We will be rolling these out over the coming months and asking for your feedback on how well they are working.

    Keep up-to-date

    Keep up-to-date on the latest consultation and engagement projects by signing up to Kingston: Let's Talk.

  • A big thank you, but we want to know more!

    We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has shared their views with us recently - we now have 1420 active users on Kingston: Let’s talk and we have received approximately 5,500 pieces of feedback over the last six months!!

    This is brilliant and we know we're asking a lot, but we're always keen to know more!

    We currently have a number of consultations running about various different services we deliver. This is because we want to ensure that we’re shaping services that residents want and need.

    We’d like to hear your ideas on how we can meet the pressures of increased demand on our services, at the same time as having a reducing budget.

    Please take a look at the various consultations on the site and have your say on local issues that matter to you.

    We will also be holding two general 'Kingston: Let's talk' events in October to help you have your say. These will include a marketplace with various stands on different consultations so you can share your ideas and thoughts on the issues most relevant to you, all in one place!

    The events will take place on Thursday 10 October and Wednesday 23 October. More details will be available soon.

    We are pleased to introduce our new online engagement portal - Kingston Conversations.

    The site allows anyone with an interest in Kingston to have their say and engage with the council, and each other, through various different tools including discussion forums, surveys, polls, ideas sharing and more.

    We want to use the tool to talk to residents and others about their views on local issues and plans.

    The site also allows users to register and set up an account, which means they can log their interests and tell us what they'd like to be kept informed about.
