Still Time to Share Views on Transport Plans

Date Published: 20 December 2018

There is still time for residents to help shape future public transport services in Rutland by sharing their views on the County’s latest Local Transport Plan.

Over the past year, Rutland County Council has been developing an updated strategy to support the delivery of local transport services up to the year 2036.

The strategy, called ‘Moving Rutland Forward’, aims to improve transport and highway provisions in the County in order to:

  • Support sustainable population and business growth
  • Meet the needs of Rutland’s most vulnerable residents
  • Support a high level of health and well-being, including combating rural isolation 

Among the proposals are a Draft Passenger Transport Strategy which sets out goals for the creation of an efficient passenger transport system that connects residents and visitors to key services and facilities.

Also included is a Draft Rights of Way Improvement Plan, which outlines how the Council intends to manage Rutland's extensive network of public rights of way.

Public consultation on Rutland’s latest Draft Local Transport Plan began in October and runs until 11 January 2019.

All of the documents which make up and support Rutland's latest Draft Local Transport Plan can be viewed on our Local Transport Plan page

You can also read copies of these documents at the Council’s offices in Oakham and at local libraries. Documents are also available on request by contacting the Council’s Transport Strategy Team at: travel4rutland@rutland.gov.uk or by calling: 01572 722 577.
