Public Forum on transport policy with guest speaker from the ACT government

By yellowsnow - 26 October 2011 1

On Wednesday 26 October 2011 the Weston Creek Community Council is hosting a Public Forum on the ACT Government’s Transport for Canberra plan. The Forum will give residents an opportunity to discuss the transport strategy with one of its authors, Kristin Blume from the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate.

The Public Forum will be held at 7.30pm at the Weston Club, 1 Liardet Street, Weston. If you’re interested in transport issues and seek to influence or know more about the future direction of transport policy in Canberra – come along and have your say!!!

On 7 October 2011 the ACT government launched the Transport for Canberra Draft Policy for public comment. The government is encouraging ACT residents to input into transport strategy, which will guide transport policy and planning in the ACT between now and 2030.

The draft report and information on how to provide feedback as part of the consultation process are available at http://timetotalk.act.gov.au.

Submissions are due by Friday 11 November.

Wow! With all this advance notice, I might even be able to scoff down this cup of tea before the meeting starts! Thankfully I have Google Transit to tell me that the shorted bus trip from my office to the meeting is 52 minutes, and only involves three busses 🙂

Now to find out if the draft report has actually been published or if we’ll have to wait until the consultation period is over before we can read the draft they’re asking for comments on.

Me? Bitter and cynical about the Government’s commitment to sustainable development and responsible transport policy in Canberra? Never!
