The online Grantham Transport Strategy survey will close next week on Friday 15 October.
Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “This is the last week to complete our survey about travel and transport in and around Grantham before it closes, so we encourage anyone who hasn’t filled it out to do so.
“The strategy that the survey results will help inform will cover the next fifteen years, so we want everyone’s views – young, old, local people, commuters and anyone else in the area. The more responses we get, the better informed our project team will be about how people see themselves getting around Grantham in the coming years.”
Anyone who regularly travels through Grantham, is encouraged to have a say in how its transport network will look over the next twenty years.
People living and working in the areas, along with businesses and other local groups, will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their experiences, visions and ideas for improving the transport network in each town at a series of upcoming drop-in sessions.
The information gathered will be used to create new transport strategies that will include proposals for improving local transport both now and in the future.
Please see the attached drop-in event summary for dates, locations and times for each town.
Cllr Davies said: “The pop-up events we have planned are the perfect opportunity for people to share their ideas on how to make getting into and around all four towns quicker and easier.
“During the drop-ins, we want as many people as possible to complete our questionnaire to tell us about their recent experiences and their expectations for the next twenty years. This information will then feed into the three new strategies we’re working on – one for Grantham, one for Sleaford and one for Skegness and Mablethorpe.
“It’s not just the people living, working and visiting each of these towns that rely on good transport connections, though. Businesses also need a strong transport network to move goods between villages, towns and cities, so the new strategies will have major economic benefits as well.”
