We want our town and city centres to be great places where people want to live. We want to be less reliant on cars, and for our towns and cities to be more pleasurable, with better air quality. We also want it to be easier to access sustainable transport from our villages and rural areas.
We need to make sure that all the elements of a successful region are connected – creating communities that are linked to jobs and training, opening more opportunities for more people. A key element to achieve all this is to make our region better connected, with reliable easy to access public transport and better transport interchanges.
