Have your say

The Council is inviting people to comment on a draft plan for developing the city’s transport links over the next 15 years.
Plymouth’s third Local Transport Plan (LTP), set to be adopted in the spring, will set out the city's long-term objectives and strategy for transport from 2011 to 2026. It will also include a more detailed plan of how the Council will invest its transport funding during the first three years of that period.
The city faces many transport challenges in the future, not least providing the improved transport infrastructure and services needed to cope with the planned growth of the population and economy.
The Council would like everyone’s views about whether the plan has identified the most pressing transport problems in the city and sets out the right approach for improving transport now and in the future.
Councillor Kevin Wigens, Cabinet Member for Transport, said: "Plans for improving the city’s transport network are relevant to everyone living and working in the area, as well as visitors. It is important that the new strategy takes into account the views of people who travel in and around the city and we want as much feedback as possible on our plans.”
A 12-week period of public consultation will begin on Monday 25 October, with roadshow events being held at venues across the city where people can view the plan and share their views.

  1. The ironic thing is, they all seem to be being held in the evening, exactly when there are few or no bus services running for them to complain about!
