Potters Bar residents urged to suggest transport improvements

RESIDENTS are being invited to suggest ways that transport could be improved in Potters Bar ahead of a county council consultation on the future of transport in the town.

The authority has commissioned a study to identify the transport challenges and opportunities facing Potters Bar and, later this month, it will be staging an event to garner residents’ views.

These ideas will directly feed into the development of an urban transport plan for the area.

Stuart Pile, the council’s executive member for highways and transport, said: “You may be a local resident, work in the town or run a local business, commute to work from the rail station, use the town’s many shops and services, regularly visit friends here or use local sports facilities, parks, bars and restaurants.

“Whatever you do, transport is always involved and your views are important.

“Come and tell us what you consider are the most pressing transport challenges facing the town, so that we can focus our solutions on improving transport for all who live in, work in and visit the town.”

A council spokeswoman added: “The event is purely to understand and gather information on problems/issues in the area.

“The development of plans is then based on this feedback and that from local members and officers.”

The consultation will take place on Saturday, July 24 from 9.30am to 2.30pm at Mount Grace School, in Church Road.
