Local residents are being invited to have their say on a new transport strategy for the district as Lancaster Civic Society look at how local transport could be improved in the future.
During the course of 2021 Lancaster Civic Society lobbied on a range of transport issues; the retention of direct rail services to London and Scotland, the City Centre Movement Strategy, the route of the proposed new link road to junction 33 and more.
The group now believe that as we begin 2022 there is a pressing need for a community perspective on the many interrelated transport issues facing the district and they will shortly be launching a series of Zoom conversations for those with an interest in transport issues. These convrstions will inform the preparation of a Community Transport Strategy which will for the first time provide an integrated community perspective on the road, rail, cycling, and walking needs of the citizens of the district.
If you have an interest and/or expertise in transport and would like to be involved please email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will provide you with links to access, by Zoom, their transport conversations.
John Regan, Chair of Lancaster Civic Society said “For too long, too little heed has been given to what the people of the district think about transport issues. The production of a Community Transport Strategy will for the first time address these issues from the perspective of ordinary citizens”
