The city has begun to make progress by investing in active, public, and shared transport in recent years.
Changes to our Community Outcomes and Strategic Priorities
The Council approved a new 2020 strategic framework on 19 December 2019 and this is currently part of the consultation document on the annual plan.
Information on our revised Community Outcomes and Strategic Priorities is currently being developed.
It is now important to continue this momentum and improve travel options for getting around. Attractive alternatives to single-occupancy car journeys are needed to avoid traffic congestion in the future.
How we will get there
- Implement an accessible city (Phases 2, 3 and 4) and continue major cycle routes construction.
- Make public transport a more attractive travel option.
- Take a strategic city-wide approach to active and public transport.
- Develop a culture of innovation around the future of transport and new/emerging technologies which allows for pilot and demonstration projects.
- A culture shift towards more flexible funding will allow innovative pilot projects to trial new initiatives before more expensive permanent versions are rolled out.
- Ramp up work on travel demand management.
