Please join our stakeholder reference group to shape Bristol’s future transport

We see a possibility for a city with good air quality, safe cycling and walking, accessible public transport for all, and where everyone can get to where they need to affordably and quickly, whether they live in the centre or the outskirts. A city where all transport is zero carbon.  

We invite you to join us in shaping this vision and bringing it about. We would particularly value your participation as part of our stakeholder reference group.  In this group, we will be emailing you once a week for four weeks to share ideas on what this vision should be – what it should achieve, where taxpayer money should be spent, and what sorts of projects should get funded. 

To sign up to the group, just follow this link to a short google form and provide a few details so we can contact you.

This invitation is from Zero West and Transport for Greater Bristol Alliance.  We are planning an intensive community engagement process over the next few weeks (November-December 2020), which will also involve geographically based (online) stakeholder meetings as well as this online stakeholder reference panel. This process will be focused on the draft Transport for Greater Bristol Alliance plans, which we will turn into engagement materials as a prompt for discussion.  Making our vision a reality in the city will take longer than that, however, and we invite you to be part of a community holding this vision in the longer term.  

If you choose to participate, we will ask you to reply to a quick (5-minute) online survey each week for four weeks in November/December.  

Drawing on the views you and others give us we will provide you with immediate feedback on how your responses relate to others who have responded so far.  You will have a chance to ask your own questions as part of this, which will be sent to others to answer. To be part of our stakeholder reference panel and receive invitations to complete the survey each week, please complete this short google form. We want to give as many different people as possible a chance to join us, so please do pass on this invitation to friends, family, and others in your network or organisation who want to see a better transport system for Bristol.  

It is up to you whether you choose to join us at this time. You are welcome to join us at any time, and if you are not ready now, you will be missed but not forgotten.  Whatever you decide, do please share this invitation to others in your networks.
