People in Harrogate and Knaresborough are being given the chance to see at first hand a range of transport options being put forward by North Yorkshire County Council.
The Council is in the process of developing a “Service Centre Transportation Strategy” (SCTS) that focuses on the needs of Harrogate, Knaresborough and surrounding communities. The strategy, which is one of 28 being prepared county-wide is aimed at addressing a wide range of transport issues.
Public consultation on the strategy continues until May 16. Two exhibitions, manned by officers from the council, will be held at the beginning of next month. They will give people the chance to view some of the suggestions for transport improvements, and to seek clarification and further information.
The exhibitions will be held on Saturday May 7 between 10am and 5pm in the Victoria Shopping Centre in Harrogate; and at Harrogate Library, between 4pm and 7pm on Wednesday May 11.
“These exhibitions will ensure we capture the views of residents and traders in the centre of Harrogate,” said County Councillor Gareth Dadd, Executive Member for Highways.
“We are also determined to gather the opinions of a group of people who are vital to the economic prosperity of Harrogate … the shoppers who use the town centre.”
Leaflets explaining the potential schemes, along with a questionnaire for completion, are available from local libraries, and in the reception area of Harrogate Borough Council’s offices at Knapping Mount, West Grove Road.
