Local Transport Plans (LTPs) are public documents that set out the highway authority’s policies, strategies, objectives and targets for improving transport in their communities. An LTP normally covers a period of 5 years. Annual Progress reports are submitted in each subsequent year.
LTPs and APRs are submitted to the Department for Transport (DfT) so they can be used to:
inform decisions on capital funding for local authorities;
inform the development of our policies on local transport; and
monitor the delivery of key national objectives and targets.
LTPs do not just focus on individual transport schemes, but take a broader view of how transport measures can help achieve wider and longer-term objectives. In implementing their LTPs, authorities can help to improve the quality of life of people who live and work in our towns, cities and countryside by encouraging social inclusion and helping people to get to jobs and the services they need.
The council is committed to striking the right balance of providing for economic and social needs whilst reducing the need for travel and protecting the environment.
