The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is calling on local (parish and town) councils to submit their nominations for the People’s Award to mark the official launch of Transport Planning Day 2019.
The Transport Planning Society (TPS) People’s Award looks for the UK’s best community-focused transport initiatives that have made a real difference to people’s access to services, quality of life and wellbeing.
Local councils, community groups, campaigners and individuals are invited to nominate transport initiatives for the award. Local authorities and transport professionals can also nominate initiatives that have engaged in local communities.
Cllr Sue Baxter, chairman of NALC, said: "NALC is delighted to be supporting the People's Award once again. With the triumph of Sevenoaks Town Council last year for their fantastic community-led transport schemes, we hope to see many more local councils follow their example, and submit their nominations."
Nominations are open until 2 August 2019. Nominated initiatives must have been in operation for at least one year. Entries must be able to show how the outcomes have made a positive contribution to the principles of transport planning.
