What active-travel initiatives would you like to support in your local area?
We need considerable improvement to our cycle network and other measures to increase cycle usage such as 20 mph zones, car free zones and improved cycle paths. Flexible and demand driven bus services connecting towns with major areas of employment and the return of bus services to the public sector. Better connectivity between bus and train services and the reopening of Grove Railway Station.
Better cycleways to encourage less use of the car .Improve rural bus services to prevent being cut off from towns which usually have medical services also leisure and hospitality services.
Please summarise your views on the future for transport in Oxfordshire.
New housing developments should be required to provide local employment as part of the planning approval to reduce the need to commute and should include sufficient local amenities so that they become communities rather than dormitories.
With more development being built in towns and villages need frequent bus services to allow people to attend their work places either locally or as a connection to other bus services for onward journeys.
