SYSTRA led the development of this new transport strategy, building on their contribution to the 2019 City Centre Masterplan, with the aim of improving the movement of people and goods around the city centre while making the city more attractive to investors.

The study is based on the following workstreams:

• How traffic moves around the city centre, and the resulting impacts on congestion and visitor experience;

• Parking provision and consideration of how this can be optimised to support the sustainability of the high street and the vibrancy of retail centres;

• How residents, workers and visitors arrive in, perceive, and move around the city centre, developing options to encourage sustainable movement and create a sense of place.

CONSULTATION: A KEY ELEMENT

A key part of this will be stakeholder engagement, and SYSTRA will be inviting the views of the public through an online survey, as well as working closely with elected members and key stakeholders throughout the project.
