Transport strategy

Transport Forum

Our Transport Forum is an independently-chaired advisory group. It brings together representatives of a wide group of stakeholders including user groups, transport owners and operators, business groups, environmental groups and delivery partners. 

The forum meets quarterly and provides expertise, intelligence and advice to the Senior Officer Group and the Partnership Board. Membership is by invitation and is reviewed regularly with partners.
