NEW SURVEY LAUNCHED TO HELP SHAPE SCOTLAND’S NATIONAL TRANSPORT POLICY

NEW SURVEY LAUNCHED TO HELP SHAPE SCOTLAND’S NATIONAL TRANSPORT POLICY

SNP MSP James Dornan is encouraging individuals, organisations and communities in Cathcart to give their views in the new Transport Scotland survey that will help shape the long-term vision for the Scottish Government’s transport policies.

The National Transport Strategy (NTS) review will contribute towards formulating a plan for the kind of transport we want for the whole of Scotland in 20 years’ time and how we plan to get there.

The early engagement survey is available online until spring 2017. It will be followed by a wider programme of national engagement beginning in summer 2017 ahead of a full public consultation.

Commenting, SNP MSP James Dornan for Cathcart said:

“The SNP is committed to giving stakeholders and communities across Scotland a greater say in influencing the development of transport policy at the local, regional and national level. I would encourage as many of my constituents as possible in Cathcart to take this chance to have your views heard and contribute to the National Transport Strategy survey available online until spring next year.

“This NTS review is intended to be a collaborative listening exercise garnering views from members of the public and interested organisations from across Scotland to help shape the future of transport in Scotland.

“The SNP government will be working closely throughout the review with Regional Transport Partnerships, local authorities and other key stakeholders through the NTS Review Partnership Group.”

NOTES

The National Transport Strategy (NTS) sets the long term vision for our 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.

The NTS was refreshed in 2015 and recommended a fuller, collaborative review of the NTS in the next Scottish Parliamentary term. Minister for Transport and the Islands, Humza Yousaf MSP, announced the full review of the NTS in August 2016.

The National Transport Strategy Review Partnership Group includes the following organisations:

Transport Scotland COSLA Scottish Local Government Partnership Regional Transport Partnerships Scottish Trade Union Congress Mobility & Access Committee for Scotland CBI Scotland Society of Chief Officers of Transportation in Scotland The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation Scottish Council for Development and Industry Scottish Cities Alliance Transform Scotland Transport Focus Citizens Advice Scotland Scottish Chamber of Commerce Visit Scotland Age Scotland Scottish Rural Action Freight Transport Association Community Transport Association Young Scot

In addition to the survey launched today, a Research and Evidence Working Group is being established which will put out a call for evidence in the New Year as part of the early engagement activity associated with the NTS review. The call for evidence will look to build on our evidence base and identify any gaps in our knowledge.
