Warwickshire County Council is consulting on its revised draft Passenger Rail Strategy 2019-2034.
Why has the Rail Strategy been reviewed?
The previous Rail Strategy, as contained within Warwickshire’s Third Local Transport Plan, is out of date. The County Council has taken the decision to produce a new Rail Strategy to maximise opportunities to enhance rail provision in Warwickshire. This is a non-statutory policy document supporting the existing Local Transport Plan; it is intended it will form part of the Fourth Local Transport Plan in due course when that is prepared.
Who is being consulted?
Anyone who is interested in local transport and the local rail offer can comment on the draft strategy. Responses are invited from a range of partners, stakeholders and people who live or work in Warwickshire.
How to respond?
The draft strategy and online questionnaire can be accessed by visiting https://ask.warwickshire.gov.uk/communities/draft-warwickshire-rail-strategy-2019-2034/
The main way to respond to the consultation is via the online questionnaire. However, if you would like to respond to this consultation in writing you can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or sending your written response to Transport Planning, Warwickshire County Council, Shire Hall, Warwick, Warwickshire CV34 4SX.
Alternatively, if you would like to discuss any aspect of the strategy please email email@example.com with your query and contact details and we will get in touch.
What happens next?
Following the consultation period responses received will be reviewed and, where feasible, the draft strategy will be amended to reflect the responses received. It is anticipated that the County Council will formally endorse the strategy in late 2019 / early 2020.
A piece of work to assess the local health and social care needs and influences on health outcomes of residents as part of the countywide Joint Strategic Needs Assessment ("JSNA") is starting in your area in September 2019.
The JSNA is a partnership piece of work led by Warwickshire County Council and supported by the District Council, health agencies and voluntary and community sector groups.
The results of this assessment will ensure local services and support are fit for purpose and well placed to help the people who need them most.
Local views about health and social care are being gathered through online surveys. There are two online surveys, one for residents and one for professionals, accessible by going to https://ask.warwickshire.gov.uk.
