Purpose: The purpose of the Shadow Sub-National Transport Body for the South West Peninsula will enable more effective engagement between the partner authorities and the Department for Transport about the challenges linked to the growth ambitions and associated strategic investment needs of the area.
This puts in place a clear mechanism for Government to engage with the South West Peninsula authorities on strategic transport investment matters on a wider geographical basis, complementing the work of transport authorities across the wider South West.
