Feedback will help shape a new Winchester Movement Strategy, which will focus on what is really important to residents, commuters and visitors, when it comes to travel.
Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Transport, Councillor Rob Humby, said: “As the city grows and evolves, we want to make sure we have an agreed strategy which is aimed at delivering the right travel and transport arrangements, so Winchester continues to be a great place to live, work and visit.”
The consultation starts on Monday 30 October, and runs until Friday 8 December. The councils wish to hear people’s views on questions such as:
how to achieve the right balance between different types of traffic
how best to support growth and economic vibrancy
improving air quality
and any other issues which are important to residents
Councillor Jan Warwick, Winchester City Council’s portfolio holder for Environment and Transport, said: “We are really pleased to be working in partnership with the County Council to provide this opportunity for residents, businesses, visitors and transport providers to share their views about what restricts movement around our Historic City, and how we can identify priorities to help improve the way Winchester works from a transport point of view.”
Councillor Humby added: “The results will form part of the new Winchester Movement Strategy for the next 20 to 30 years, and help the County Council to bid for national funding and prioritise where money is spent.”
The consultation will be published on: www.hants.gov.uk/winchestermovementstrategy, from midday on Monday 30 October.
