Mansfield Community Transport Scheme Needs You

Mansfield Community Transport Scheme Needs You

A local Mansfield resident is urging as many elderly and disabled residents in the area to complete a survey and have their say, to help a community transport operator develop plans to improve transport in the area following the success of a pilot project. 

Paul Allen, 67, from the Bellamy Road Estate has used the service, which was funded as part of the Community Champions Project, to get to and from appointments and now wants the service to continue, to help more people travel around Mansfield.

“I suffer from a number of health issues which makes moving around very difficult, so this service has been a lifeline to me.” said Paul.

According to the Government’s own measures, Mansfield has significant levels of deprivation and more than half of the areas within Mansfield are among the top 30% most deprived in England with ten of its areas falling within the top 10% of the whole of England.

Non-profit community transport services have been proven to assist in the regeneration of deprived areas, increasing levels of accessibility and community cohesion, and aiding the work of local voluntary and community organisations.

“We are seeking views from anyone in the area who would like to see improvements to transport” said Managing Director Ian Combellack. “In particular, we’re keen to hear from the elderly, people with disabilities, as well as community and voluntary groups.” The survey is being organised by CT4N Charitable Trust - a local charity that specialises in providing transport for older people and those with disabilities.

The charity has a local base at Mansfield Woodhouse and has been operating the pilot project since April.

The survey is open until August 13th.
