Transport Survey

Hi everyone

As you are aware, transport is a hot topic in Craven. North Yorkshire Council (NYC) is asking everyone in the county to take part in a survey to help shape the future of transport in the district. The NYC Let’s Talk Transport survey will help us understand the issues in your local area so it is vital that as many Craven voices as possible are heard to capture information about how we travel in Craven. This is the first stage of informal public engagement to capture current travel habits and thoughts on transport. A formal consultation will follow later this year where we will be inviting comments on the draft plan.

The survey aims to:

* Find out how you currently travel round North Yorkshire and how this had changed over the last few years
* Hear about your experiences of traveling around North Yorkshire
* Gather your ideas about tackling transport issues
* Use your feedback to help inform and shape the Local Transport Plan for North Yorkshire.


The Local Transport Plan is a set of documents that the Government requires all local transport authorities to produce. It sets out the strategic transport aims for the region over the next few years. These are based on the Government’s aims and objectives for transport, but it also needs to reflect local priorities. It will allow us to continue to bid for funding to deliver the infrastructure we need to better connect residents, unlock economic growth, and promote sustainability. NYC’s current plan needs updating because the way people travel has changed since the Covid 19 pandemic, government policy has shifted, and electric vehicles have become more popular.

Please help us by sharing the details of Let’s Talk Transport with your networks and contacts. Please find attached resources to share on social media and a poster.

This is the first stage of engagement with the public, which runs for 8 weeks from Monday 22 May until Monday the 17 July 2023.

The survey can be completed online at

Paper copies can be collected from local libraries and returned in the envelope provided. An electronic copy of the paper survey is also available here.

We can send a paper copy of the survey direct to residents. This can be requested by email to or phone 01609 536400, or by writing to:

Let’s Talk
North Yorkshire Council
County Hall

Accessible formats of the survey are available on request using the contact details above.

Members of the Transport Planning team will be out and about in some locations across the county during the survey period. They will be helping residents complete the online survey or provide a copy of the paper survey with return envelope to complete later. A list of when and where residents can meet us will be published on our Let’s Talk website in due course.

We can also supply posters, bookmarks and paper surveys to take along to any meetings you are attending during the 8 week engagement period.

Best wishes
