Let’s talk about…Transport

Cheshire West and Chester Council is starting a conversation on the future of transport of in the borough.

“Let’s talk about...Transport” launches today (Monday 20 November 2023) with an on-line survey and full information at: 

www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/LTP4 .

The conversation on the future of transport is relevant to everyone who travels to, from or through the borough, including residents, businesses and a range of local and regional partners.

In this initial stage of engagement, respondents are being invited to provide their views on the borough’s current transport system and the big issues around transport across the borough, to develop a draft vision and priorities for the future of local transport.

The Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Highways, Councillor Karen Shore said:

“Transport gives us access to work, education, leisure activities and essential services. It shapes the places we live, impacts our health and wellbeing and is vital to our local economy.

“Your views, ideas and experiences will help us to shape the future of transport in the borough to support our communities.  This is a critically important conversation which affects everyone who lives, works or visits the borough.  

“It's an opportunity to make sure that our transport systems and networks work for the people who use them - not merely getting us from A to B but helping us address the future challenges our borough faces, such as climate change and social exclusion.

“It will also be key to unlocking the government funding we need to deliver on these priorities. If you are interested in what our communities and neighbourhoods should look like in the future, I'd encourage you to share your views on our proposals.”

Four in-person ‘drop in’ events and two online webinars will take place during the engagement window, where interested parties can learn more about the proposals, and ask staff any questions. These events are open to all residents and stakeholders:
