Transport Proposals – Progress Update and Action Plan

 

 

Proposal

Progress Summary

Publicise and encourage the use of existing transport services, both from bus companies and other specialist providers

Parish Plan circulated to all households publicises the location of contact details for Longparish bus representatives   (in bus shelters) as well as contact details for Cango and Stagecoach buses, Andover Dial a Ride and Andover Neighbourcare.

 

Improve awareness of services that are or can be delivered to the village, such as prescriptions, library, groceries

Basic information in Parish plan, but more can be done

Encourage and facilitate car sharing locally

Informal networks are already operating; need to find way to formalise this (potentially with e mail groups)

 

 

Outstanding Actions

By whom?

By when?

Many of the issues identified in the Parish Plan are to do with communication. Link with the Parish Council Communications Committee to explore the different communication options (eg Hill and Valley, Directory, Shop, Notice boards, website…..) and decide on the most appropriate media.
