Public Consultation begins on Transport

Friday 15 December 2017

MK Council is asking residents and businesses to give their views, opinions and feedback about transport provision in the city through an online questionnaire which can be completed online  

 

Paper copies of the questionnaire are available in all nine libraries, Civic Offices and Saxon Court.

 

The questionnaire is part of an 8-week public consultation on the new ‘MK Mobility Strategy’ starting on Friday15 December 2017 and ending at 5pm on Monday 12 February 2018.

 

The feedback from the consultation will help to shape the Council’s transport plans for the future and recognises important changes and issues such as:

 

  • Increase in population and therefore increase in traffic on the road network
  • New innovation and technology e.g. autonomous vehicles, driverless pods
  • Reducing carbon emissions in the city
  • Recognising changing work patterns such as working from home
  • Promoting more sustainable options like cycling and walking
  • Challenging the dependency on the car
  • Evaluating general attitudes and behaviour towards transport options
  • Accessibility of transport

 

Cllr Liz Gifford, Cabinet Member for Place said “I would strongly urge everyone to take the short questionnaire and let us know what you think about transport provision in MK, now and for the future.”

“Your responses are key to planning how the Council focus on transport options and ensure that people’s needs are met”

“MK is getting bigger every year and we need to plan for this growth in advance whilst also protecting our environment, supporting new innovation and providing choice to all residents”
