Our transport plan describes the council’s strategy and policy framework for transport and is used as a guide for investment priorities as well as being considered by other agencies when determining their planning or delivery decisions.
Our new Local Transport Plan (LTP), covering the period 2020-2036, was adopted at the full County Council meeting of 19 July 2022. The new plan replaces the previous version of the plan adopted in 2011.
Development of the plan has included consultation on both the Strategy, and on the Implementation Plan, starting with a public consultation to gauge the public’s priorities for transport and steer its development. The draft plans were then consulted on and changes made to reflect comments from the public, businesses, district authorities and statutory bodies such as Natural England. There has also been consultation on the technical assessments undertaken to support development of the plan, principally the strategic and environmental assessments and habitat regulation assessment.
The Local Transport Plan 4 Strategy was adopted at Full Council in November 2021 to set the policy tone and direction in which the Implementation Plan could be developed. The Strategy was reviewed and updated to include developments in funding and government policy before the full LTP, comprising both the strategy and Implementation Plan, was adopted in July 2022.
