Winter 2009 - Public Consultation Response
The first phase of consultation for BRT Northern closed in late 2009. 49.7% of people who responded to the BRT Northern consultation agreed with the concept of introducing the BRT Northern route. The most important reasons people gave for introducing BRT Northern were to improve bus journeys (by making them quicker and more reliable), to improve links between Rotherham and Sheffield, and to provide an alternative to the car. Thank you to everyone who participated in the consultation.
Summer 2009 – BRT North Public Consultation
The public consultation for the BRT North proposals opened in July 2009 and allowed stakeholders and members of the public opportunities to comment on the scheme.
The consultation ensured that everyone had access to information about the proposals and the opportunity to have their say on what they think about BRT North. Consultation leaflets were distributed along and around the proposed route and hosted in Community Access Points, while key stakeholders and large businesses in the area received DVD hard-copies of the DigiBrief explaining the proposals. The proposals were also promoted in local newspapers.
The feedback received from the consultation helped form part of the application to the Department for Transport.
