Views wanted on travel in Richmondshire

The 856 bus at Aysgarth.

 North Yorkshire Council is asking people living, working, and travelling in Richmondshire to share information about how they travel and the issues they face.

This will help inform the new Local Transport Plan (LTP) for the county – a document that will guide the future approach to all forms of transport.

The Local Transport Plan sets out the strategic transport aims for the region over the next few years.

It will allow the council to continue to bid for funding to deliver the infrastructure we need to better connect residents, unlock economic growth, and promote sustainability.

By taking part in Let’s Talk Transport council officials say participants will help the council understand the issues in this area – there also will be a formal consultation later, where you can comment on the draft plan.

There are several ways you can take part in Let’s Talk Transport:

You can fill in an online survey at

If you would prefer, you can pick up a paper copy from your local library and return it in the envelope provided.

Alternatively, you can write to: Let’s Talk, North Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Northallerton, DL7 8AD

Accessible formats of the survey are available on request.

The survey closes on July 17.
