- Meeting of Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee, Tuesday, 16th March, 2021 4.00pm (Item 76.)
76.1 The Chair provided the following communications:
“As you know, we’ve got £2.37m of central government funding for local walking and cycling schemes, through the Active Travel Fund. Consultation for the schemes took place from 1st Feb to 14th March according to the Consultation Plan agreed by this committee in December. Initial results show nearly 5,000 responses to the consultation survey, we’ve also had great feedback through various stakeholder sessions, and It’s also been great to see the feedback from the various focus groups that were held, including with young people, members of the disabled community, and older people – as we know that improving transport infrastructure for all users really impacts on social equality
Thank you to everyone who has had their say on this. This was not a referendum, which I know some people wanted – but we followed the government guidance and the feedback is valuable and will help inform the way forward. The feedback is now being analysed in detail and will be reviewed by this committee in June. Massive thanks go to Laura Wells, Mark Prior and everyone in transport for running such a thorough consultation”.
