Transport priorities for the next 20 years are the focus of a new survey that aims to find out what matters most to people as they travel around Norwich.
Norfolk County Council and the Greater Norwich councils of Norwich, Broadland and South Norfolk have joined forces to gather information from the public that will help update the Transport for Norwich (TfN) strategy.
As well as finding out about how people travel in and around Norwich at the moment, the consultation also asks people to rate the importance of a range of transport-related issues, including new technology, sustainability and environmental factors.
The TfN review survey runs alongside the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) consultation, which will result in a vision and strategy for growth in the area until 2036.
Stuart Clancy, Economic Development Portfolio Holder for Broadland District Council, said: “The future of our communities is dependent on a proper transport infrastructure so we would encourage all Broadland residents to respond to the consultation so that their views can be taken into account in shaping this direction.”
Once the outcome of the GNLP is known, information from this and the Transport for Norwich strategy review consultation will be used to inform the content of a second phase of consultation to develop a draft strategy.
For more information and to take part in the consultation, please visit the consultation where you will also find links to details on the Greater Norwich Local Plan. The deadline for responses is 5pm on Thursday 15 March 2018
