Introduction and policy background

WarningThe report on this page is an earlier consultation version of the Journey to Net Zero Transport Plan. Significant changes were then made to this report as part of the final adopted version

Improving people's lives is the overriding purpose of Bath & North East Somerset Council (B&NES). It provides the foundation of our Corporate Strategy (The Strategy), which is the ‘golden thread’ that drives everything we do.

The Strategy has two core policy themes:

  • Tackling the climate and ecological emergency
  • Giving people a bigger say

The Strategy is underpinned by three principles, which shape the delivery of the purpose and policies:

  • Preparing for the future
  • Delivering for local residents
  • Focusing on prevention
