Page 1 of 16

Closes 3 Mar 2024

Introduction

Issues and opportunities have been categorised under three headings. These are People, Place and Activity.

People – means developing a transport system that works for everyone, where transport needs are met in a safe, efficient, and accessible way. It means creating healthy, thriving communities and places to visit by providing genuinely sustainable (i.e., not environmentally damaging, or harmful to future generations) ways to travel so that people's quality of life is enhanced through transport.

Place – means continuing to enhance and protect the unique cultural and natural assets that make Dorset and BCP special. By reducing transport emissions, developing sustainable and accessible infrastructure for all, and improving local air quality.

Activity – means continuing to promote transport related activities that enhance the local economy and benefit residents, while making sure infrastructure is resilient and the best technologies are used to help achieve the bright and healthy future for BCP and Dorset that we envisage now.

The following sections will present a series of statements about transport-related issues and opportunities under these three themes. Let us know what you think about each statement to help us design a Transport Plan that tackles the real issues that are important to, and experienced by, the people that live, work, and visit the area.
