Peninsula Transport is a new partnership created to transform transport and boost economic growth. It has been formed by the five lead transport authorities in the Peninsula – Cornwall Council, Devon County Council, Torbay Council, Plymouth Council and Somerset County Council.

The partnership brings together the area’s five transport authorities to work directly with the Department for Transport on the strategic transport priorities for the region. It will involve both the Heart of the South West and Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnerships, alongside Highways England, Homes England and Network Rail. Peninsula Transport will be seeking approval from the Secretary of State in due course to become a Sub National Transport Body (SNTB) which allows strategic transport investment decisions to be made at a local level rather than nationally.

We're working towards a world where people are better connected to each other and to their place.  We believe that promoting our twin values of connectedness and equity of opportunity lies at the heart of helping our communities find their own, local solutions to loneliness and social isolation, environmental regeneration, reducing crime and anti-social behaviour and building community cohesion.

First off - we made the word up! Please don't be alarmed if you haven't come across it before!

It just means that it operates within (roughly) one square kilometre. It's our way of committing to a particular community, in a particular place. It's a technique, developed by Interwoven, to help CONNECT PEOPLE TO PEOPLE - AND PEOPLE TO PLACE. We've been refining this technique since 2014 and it is under continual reflective review.
