Transport for Norwich strategy review

We want you to help us plan the future of transport in Norwich.

The current transport strategy has been in place since 2004 and has seen significant changes to the city, including transformation of the Westlegate area into a new public space and changes to St Stephens Street and Chapel Field North that have improved journey times for buses.

As we look to the future of investment in our network, we want to update the strategy to match the changing needs of the city and Greater Norwich as it continues to grow.

Take part in the consultation 

We’ve put together a short survey to find out how you travel around Norwich at the moment and what your priorities are for the city’s transport in the future.  It takes about five minutes to complete and will help us put together more detailed proposals on our approach to transport over the coming years.

Begin the survey

The survey closes on Thursday 15 March. It runs alongside the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) consultation, which sets out a vision and strategy for growth in the area until 2036.  Visit www.gnlp.org.uk for more details on the GNLP and how to comment.

Other ways to get involved

Colleagues from the Transport for Norwich team will be on hand to discuss the consultation and the future of transport and infrastructure at some of the roadshow events for the GNLP.

Next steps

An important consideration in deciding what Norwich and its surrounding area need in terms of transport infrastructure is where and how growth is planned to take place.  Once the outcome of the GNLP consultation is known, we will be using this information alongside results from the survey above to inform the content of a second phase of consultation to develop a draft strategy.

Background

This survey is the first stage in putting together an updated Transport for Norwich strategy.  The existing document, known as the Norwich Area Transport Strategy (NATS), was adopted in 2004, with the implementation plan of projects following in 2010.  Read more about the history of NATS.
