Suffolk County Council and Babergh District Council are working together to develop a Local Transport Action Plan (LTAP) for Sudbury and Great Cornard and have planned a series of activities during this year to inform and consult with local residents.

The newsletter provides information on the LTAP and include a questionnaire asking for residents' views on all aspects of travel and transport in Sudbury and Great Cornard.

Joan Girling, member of the county council's executive committee, said: "Involving and consulting with local people is a high priority for Suffolk County Council when developing our local transport policies. We hope that people will take this opportunity to tell us what is important to them."

Wil Gibson, county councillor for Great Cornard and chair of the Sudbury and Great Cornard Partnership and Reference Group, said: "We hope that by asking local people for their views we will be able to come up with a Local Transport Action Plan which addresses the issues that are most important to residents in the area."

Further information will shortly be available on the Sudbury and Great Cornard LTAP web page at www.sudbury-great-cornard-ltap.com.
