Northwich Transport Strategy drop in dates
30 October 2017Public drop in sessions continue this week for the new transport strategy for Northwich at Weaverham Community Centre, Russet Road, on Wednesday 1 November between 4pm and 6.30pm.
The strategy is being developed to address current traffic congestion issues and support the future housing and regeneration plans for the town and wider urban area. The plans and proposals are included in a 12 week public consultation.
Public drop-in sessions have been scheduled as part of the consultation to consider draft recommendations and proposals.
Councillor Brian Clarke, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Infrastructure said: “Northwich town centre is receiving over £130 million public and private sector investment, transforming the town’s role as a major retail and leisure destination.
“In addition to Barons Quay there has been a new marina, the Memorial Court leisure and entertainment centre and flood defence works. A series of local transport improvements have been introduced to aid traffic movements in the town centre. The town is also the focus of significant housing growth with over 4000 homes planned for the area.
“The success of the Transport Strategy relies on accurate information from residents and businesses to address the problems and provide solutions. Please take part in the consultation either completing the online survey or visit one of the drop in sessions.”
An online survey is available at: www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/nts. Paper copies of the survey and leaflets will also be available at the drop in events as well as in local libraries and information points. Exhibition boards will be on display throughout the consultation period at Northwich Customer Service Centre.
It is planned that the new Northwich Transport Strategy will be completed in spring 2018.
