What is the Draft Transport Strategy for East Cambridgeshire?
We have drafted a transport strategy to tackle the current and future transport pressures in and around the district, and to help support growth in East Cambridgeshire. The purpose of this strategy is to:
- Provide a detailed policy framework and Action Plan of potential transport improvements for the area, addressing current problems and consistent with the policies of the third Cambridgeshire Local Transport Plan.
- Support the East Cambridgeshire Local Plan, and take account of the committed and predicted levels of growth, detailing the transport infrastructure and services necessary to deliver this growth.
The strategy contains details of the schemes proposed in the short and medium term as well as the longer term schemes as proposed in the Long Term Transport Strategy.
We asked for views of anyone who lives, works, visits or travels through East Cambridgeshire in order to improve this draft transport strategy. Let us know your views on the strategy objectives, policies and the action plan of proposed transport improvements for the area by answering the questionnaire before the 8th April 2016.
View the consultation document below for a summary of the information we consulted on and answer the questionnaire. Hard copies of the consultation leaflet and questionnaire were made available at libraries and doctors surgeries around East Cambridgeshire and on request from the Transport, Infrastructure, Policy and Funding Team. Five exhibitions were held across East Cambridgeshire in Stetchworth, Sutton, Littleport, Soham and Ely.
