Transport Topic Group

After our initial meetings, the Transport Topic Group agreed common interests and priorities centred around campaigning for modal shift towards more cycling and active travel, effective and integrated public transport, and against the addition of new roads as a default approach.  There is a developing page of 'Interesting Stuff' on each of these themes, as well as general transport related content, all linked below. 

For the group's latest news, shared information, previous meeting notes and next meeting sign-up, please see further down...  and please do join us if you are interested!

Group News

The Transport Topic Group felt that Wiltshire's emerging local plan content, (both for local areas, and overall 'Local Transport Review' linked here), reflect a Council not planning in line with the CEE, and to support its net zero emissions by 2030 aim, which will require modal shift away from private car use. 

We're grateful to Margaret W and Andrew N for putting together this response which formed part of the unified consultation response submitted by WCA.

Group Resources

Here is a link to our Transport Topic Group database.  It's a work in progress, and suggestions (& any corrections) are welcome! 

It so far contains transport-related leads, decision-makers and officers at SWLEP, The Western Gateway Sub-National Transport Body, and Wiltshire Council. 

It also contains a list of the CATGs (Community Area Transport Groups) and who seems to attend them. 

We intend to add more for Swindon and the surrounding Local Authorities.
