Joint Transport Plan (West of England)

South Gloucestershire along with the West of England's three other local authorities have launched a public consultation as part of the Joint Transport Study, which will inform high level strategy and the delivery of major transport schemes throughout the area until 2036.

We want to ask people who live, work and travel in the West of England about the key transport issues affecting the area, and what sort of transport solutions we should look at over the next 20 years.

This is the first stage of the process to agree a strategy through to 2036. Local communities and stakeholders will have further opportunities to comment over the coming months.

To find out more about the Joint Transport Study please read the Summary Document and visit the dedicated web pages:

This consultation about the first stage in the transport study is open until 29 January 2016.

South Gloucestershire Council, Bath and North East Somerset Council, Bristol City Council and North Somerset Council are preparing the study in parallel with the West of England's Joint Spatial Plan, which is looking at how to meet the need for housing and employment space up to 2036.

Take part and have your say

The Joint Transport Study provides you with a chance to tell us how you think transport should be provided in the West of England over the next 20 years. It’s essential that people take the opportunity to have their say on transport issues in our area and your ideas for the future, as it will play such an important part in the success of our area.

Comments can be made on anything relating to the Joint Transport Study between Monday 9 November 2015 and 5pm on Friday 29 January 2016.

To have your say, you can respond in the following ways:

We are particularly keen to find out if you feel that all relevant areas are being considered and whether you think there are any specific impacts or alternatives that the council and its partners should consider.

Information is also available from your local South Gloucestershire library and One Stop Shop

This consultation has now closed and we are analysing the results, which will be published here in due course.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
