Our initial engagement

In November 2021 we held a public engagement where we asked the public what they thought of the main vision and goals of the developing LTCP.

We also asked people what they thought our priorities for transport were, including better public transport, cycling and walking, pollution and air quality, and protecting the environment.

The public could also talk about specific transport issues.

Key findings from this initial engagement period included the following:

  • 97% of the public understanding why a new vision for transport was needed.
  • 57% of the public either strongly agreeing or mostly agreeing that the updated vision is the right future for transport in the region.
  • Bus routes and frequency were the highest priority in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, except for Cambridge, where reducing congestion in the city was the priority.
  • More ambitious carbon net zero targets, more transport infrastructure and affordability were other top priorities.

The feedback received has helped to shape the draft LTCP.
