National Transport Strategy - early engagement survey
The National Transport Strategy (NTS) sets the long term vision for Transport Scotland's transport policies. It was first published in 2006 after the Scottish Government consulted the public, interested individuals and a wide range of organisations on their views for the future of transport in Scotland.
Review of the National Transport Strategy
The NTS was refreshed in 2016 and recommended a fuller, collaborative review of the NTS in the next Scottish Parliamentary term.
The review of the NTS will set out an updated vision for what kind of transport they want for the whole of Scotland in 20 years’ time and how they plan to get there.
Early engagement survey
They are keen to gather your views at an early stage to shape what should be the key themes of the NTS review and have prepared a short online survey to collect responses to the following questions regarding transport and the National Transport Strategy:
Have you used, or referred to, the 2006 National Transport Strategy (NTS)?
The current strategy sets out the three key strategic outcomes of improved journey times and connections; reduced emissions; and improved quality, accessibility and affordability. Do you think each of these will still be relevant over the next 20 years?
If there was one thing that needs to change substantially now in transport, what would that be?
What do you think are the main transport challenges and opportunities over the next 20 years?
How would you like us to engage with you during the development of the future strategy that will lead to a formal public consultation?
You will have until Friday 31 March 2017 to respond. Access the NTS Early Engagement Survey by clicking here.
If you wish to submit any thoughts in the meantime, or request a hard copy of the survey, please contact them at: [email protected].
