Transport for the South East: response to consultation on draft Transport Strategy

Transport for the South East (TfSE) is the sub-national transport body, currently operating in shadow form, which covers Berkshire, East Sussex, Hampshire, Kent, Surrey, and West Sussex.  It has the twin purpose of facilitating the delivery of a regional transport strategy and promoting economic growth in the South East.  With regard to the first purpose, TfSE is consulting on a draft Transport Strategy, which aims to shape the South East as a region economically, technologically and environmentally over the next 30 years, and change the way that investment is made in transport.  It addresses issues such as connectivity, reliability, collaboration, ‘smart’ technology, health and well-being, air quality, accessibility, safety, carbon and climate change, and other environmental impacts. 


The review of the County Council’s Local Transport Plan will need to be consistent with the Transport Strategy.  It will also be the starting point for bids by TfSE to Government and other bodies for funding to deliver new and improved strategic transport infrastructure, including schemes in West Sussex.
