Consultation opens on Peterborough’s fourth Local Transport Plan

Health & Wellbeing
News from Peterborough City Council: Views are being sought on a plan that sets out Peterborough's transport vision for the next five years.

A Local Transport Plan is produced every five years that sets out how to tackle existing and future transport issues, with an ultimate aim of providing the best possible transport service in and around the city.

The council is urging residents and businesses to look at the plan and answer a questionnaire as part of the overall consultation programme.

Three consultation events will take place at Peterborough Town Hall, Bridge Street, Peterborough, from 9am to 5pm on Thursday 29 October, Wednesday 4 November and Tuesday 10 November.

Councillor Peter Hiller, council cabinet member for growth, planning, housing and economic development, said: “The fourth Local Transport Plan will run from 2016-2021 and sets out how the city’s transport system will support the future growth and development of Peterborough.

"Peterborough is one of the UK’s fastest growing cities and we are also working to create the UK’s Environment Capital. It is vital we have a transport system that supports this vision and the Local Transport Plan will be our blueprint that sets out how we will continue to develop and improve local transport.

"We welcome everyone to have their say on the plan as it is important to get as many views heard as possible."

The consultation leaflet and survey can also be viewed at http://www.peterborough.gov.uk/LTP.

Hard copies of the leaflet and questionnaire are available from the reception at the Town Hall, in Bridge Street, and Bayard Place, in Broadway, until Tuesday 1 December.
