York Transport Strategy Update

On the 2nd February Tony May of the Transport Advisory Group summarised the key developments since he spoke to us in 2022.

York Civic Trust published proposals in 2022 . CYC eventually published  a draft Transport Strategy in November 2023 which contained most of the proposals detailed in the Civic Trust document. A public consultation is being held, that ended on 4th February.

The political structure  is being changed and from 1st May York and North Yorkshire will be governed by a Mayoral Combined Authority with responsibility to produce an overall Transport Plan by Autumn.

This timescale is thought to be unrealistic and the hope is that the MCA will accept the following:-

·         Local Transport Strategy Objectives

·         LTS - Policy Focus Areas

The outstanding need is to convert the aspirations into specific costed action plans.

The talk generated a lot of very interesting and relevant questions which Tony responded to well.
