Travel and Transport in East Suffolk
The eight Community Partnerships across East Suffolk have identified many dimensions to the transport priority, for example connectivity, green vehicles, walking and cycling, community transport and alternative forms of transport provision.  Today will focus on two of the most raised dimensions – rural transport and active and sustainable travel. Participants will be updated on the data and current activity and can also help shape the debate about the future of transport in East Suffolk.


14:00 – 15:30: Making Travel More Active and Sustainable

This session will reflect current thinking about the modal shift underway towards active and sustainable travel alternatives. This will include an overview of the changing national policy landscape towards walking and cycling and a picture of what’s happening or planned in East Suffolk as a result (with input from local stakeholders). The session will conclude with a discussion to help inform the local debate and how we could work through the Community Partnerships to support and add to what’s planned.
Facilitated by:

  • Nick Khan, East Suffolk Council
  • Andrew Summers, Transport East
  • Carl Ashton and Paul Horne, Sufolk County Council
  • Anthony Taylor and Jason Beck, East Suffolk Council
