Planning - transport policy
The Local Transport Plan 3 2011-2026 (LTP3) is the most up-to-date transport policy document for the borough. The document sets out the borough’s transport strategy from 2011 to 2026. It is supported by implementation plans that operate in three-year cycles.
LTP3 provides the framework by which the borough’s transport system can be secured through investment, managed, maintained and monitored so that the council can keep pace of, and respond to, changing circumstance in the borough.
It covers all modes of transport including walking, cycling, public transport, car-based travel and freight, and contains policies that meet the borough’s social, economic and environmental objectives. It also includes an implementation plan that outlines how these strategies will be delivered.
The plan broadly seeks to:
- promote healthier forms of transport
- support robust economic growth
- reduce road congestion
- make public transport a more attractive option
- protect the natural environment
- improve air quality
- reduce greenhouse gas emissions
This will work towards improving the quality of life for residents, businesses and visitors.
