Cambridgeshire and Peterborough invites feedback on transport plans

Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Dr Nik Johnson

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority is inviting early public feedback on its refreshed Local Transport and Connectivity Plan (LTCP).

Members of the public have until November 28 to add their views that will feed into the ongoing work and also inform the next stage of public engagement – a formal public consultation, currently planned for January.

In the current engagement people are invited to have their say on a proposed updated transport vision and a series of key transport objectives.

There will also be the opportunity to say which are the main transport challenges and priorities in their region.

The work will refresh the current Local Transport Plan which was adopted in January 2020

Some of the big issues covered by the plan include public health, accelerating carbon reduction, protecting the environment, the impact of Covid-19, access to jobs and education, reducing inequality and supporting economic growth.

The LTCP is being revamped to recognise the changes which have happened locally and nationally affecting transport. 

That includes in the impact of Covid-19, the developing response locally to climate change including the recommendations of the Cambridgeshire  and Peterborough Independent Commission on Climate, as well as Government’s plans to decarbonise transport.

‘Connectivity’ has been added to the title of the plan to recognise how important the internet is now on transport.

With greater trends towards working and learning from home, as well as social and leisure activities, shopping and accessing services, quality and accessibility of digital infrastructure has an impact on the amount of travel taking place.

The LTCP is planned to be completed and recommended to the Board for adoption in spring 2022.

The public can have their say or ask questions during the engagement through yourltcp.co.uk or by email [email protected].

Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Dr Nik Johnson said: “There’s still time for the public to have an early say on how they see the future of transport in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

“Transport impacts all of our lives, and the Combined Authority wants to deliver better journeys and connectivity across the entire region.

“Hearing directly from people living and working in the region is crucial to our planning, so I would encourage everyone to take this opportunity to tell us what they think about or plans so far, and what matters most to them. There’s still time to get involved ahead of our consultation next year.”
