Monmouthshire Residents and the wider public  are being invited to share their views on the future of Chepstow’s transport connections, with a study looking at a number of transport options in the local area and wider region.

The current Stage 2 of the Chepstow Transport Study welcomes residents to give their feedback on a shortlist of options, with the aim of helping to select a preferred way forward. The consultation runs from 9:00am on Monday 2nd November 2020 until 17:00pm on Sunday 13th December 2020 and will be held online due to the current situation regarding COVID-19. The virtual consultation aims to offer residents a similar experience to that of a face-to-face event and people will be able to ask questions via webchat or telephone.

The Chepstow Transport Study is being run by Monmouthshire County Council in conjunction with strategic partners including the Welsh Government, the Welsh Office and the Department of Transport, Highways England, Forest of Dean District Council, Gloucestershire County Council and South Gloucestershire Council.

Monmouthshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, Councillor Jane Pratt said: “I’m delighted we are able to move into the second stage of the Chepstow Transport Study. The public’s input on this important piece of work is absolutely vital to help move forward with the best transport option for Chepstow, Monmouthshire and our neighbouring authorities. I encourage residents to take part in the consultation online to make sure you have your say.”
