The council's draft Transport Strategy which is out for consultation until October 24th includes a Public Transport Plan, which will shape our council's work for the next 10 years. This is the place for you to discuss the proposals and what you'd like to see included and help us form our response to the proposals.
A first reading of the Public Transport Strategy and some discussions at Green Drinks brought up the following comments:
Hi, I was at the Green Drinks meeting about this on Thurs 11/9.
I know a bunch of graduate Transport planners at UCL, so I can ask some of them to look at bits of the Strategy, if this would help.
No worries if not. just thought I would offer.
Hey Leo, that would be great!
Did you have any bit of the strategy in mind?
no preference, whichever section(s) make the most sense.
on the night, we were talking about splitting them up and allocating them. Dave (i think? sorry, I'm really bad with names), was going to allocate/ assign responsibility. He may have done this already, I'm new to this forum, so I'm not sure where exactly to look for stuff yet.
The regulars were pretty comfortable that some sections will be well covered (e.g. cycling), so whichever makes sense for planning students to help with. Maybe the Sustainable transport plan (draft SPD)?
Yes, we think cycling and walking will be covered by other organisation, so we're going to major on Liveable Neighbourhoods and maybe look at Public Transport. I guess with the SPD we think it kind of falls out of getting the rest right, but it would be great to have your friends vies on any of it really.
ok, I'll ask for general comments/ thoughts. and collate these ahead of the big-green pow-wow.
Thanks, Leo, look forward to meeting you there.
