Transport policy

The Local Transport Plan 3 2011 to 2026 (LTP3) sets out the borough’s transport strategy. 

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
  • freight

It 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.
