Traffic Survey:
“What are your views on Transport & Energy?”
ACE Settle & Area Transport and Energy Survey 2021.

Our Transport and Energy groups spent much of 2020 looking at the things we
might expect in the ’new normal’. Whether it’s your idea of normal or not, change
is coming. There are firm dates for switching from diesel and petrol to
electric vehicles [EVs], the first ever National Bus Strategy and a Transport
De-carbonisation Plan have been published by the Government, and there’s
to be a ban on fitting gas and oil boilers in new-build homes from 2025.

Getting the future we want depends upon knowing what we need to achieve
and how ready we are to make the changes required. For this reason,
ACE would like to understand residents’ views. This information will help
us in lobbying for the changes that our community wants.
You can complete the survey on-line by type this URL into your browser:
https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/2S6TD3L
If you would prefer to complete a paper version you can contact ACE at
acesettleandarea@gmail.com for one to be sent out to you.
