This week is your last chance to share your views on a draft plan that will map out the future management of the county’s highways network.

The Network Management Plan is a strategy that governs how the council manages our highways network and ensures that residents, visitors, businesses and local communities get the best out of this important asset.

The plan is being updated and is proposed to cover the period 2019 – 2034 alongside our Local Transport Plan, and we are seeking your views and feedback on our objectives, priorities and action plan.

Cllr John Harrington, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Transport, said: “The thoughts of residents, businesses and utilities providers are vital in helping us shape our Network Management Plan, which will lead the management of our transport network. The renewed plan will help to improve access to services, tackle congestion, promote active travel, improve air quality, and help to further strengthen our local economy.

“Thank you to everyone who has already taken part, but if you haven’t yet done so, there is still time. I encourage people to take our questionnaire before the deadline of Friday 4 October.”
