THE ABOLITION OF THE MCC'S TRANSPORT PLANNING IMPLICATIONS

Government intends to abolish the metropolitan county councils and devolve responsibility for transport to a combination of district councils and joint boards. The major conurbations in this country suffer from serious social and economic problems, which need urgent action to halt their decline and achieve regeneration. Abolition of the county councils will not remove these problems and will not provide an effective means of planning for the future and achieve recovery. This paper is addressed to the implications of the abolition for transportation planning which is a vital element of the regeneration process, and a means of making the most effective use of limited financial resources. The paper is not directed to the preservation of the metropolitan counties for their own sake, but to pointing up vital activities which should be maintained at county area level. (TRRL)
