The Local Transport Plan

Skip main menu

The Local Transport Plan ('LTP') is the statutory planning document that sets out the Council's vision, strategy and policies for transport.  It also describes the approaches and measures that will be taken to implement these policies in each of the Council’s Local Committee areas over the course of the Plan.  It provides the framework to co-ordinate the local delivery of integrated transport and seeks improvements to our transport systems and the quality of people lives.


The first Local Transport Plan ('LTP1') was submitted to the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions at the end of July 2000 and covers a five-year period from 2000/01-2005/06.  LTP2 covers the period April 2006 to March 2012. Work is underway on LTP3 which covers the period April 2011 to March 2026.

In July each year the County Council has produced an Annual Progress Report ('APR') and in 2006 produced a “Delivery Report” covering the whole of the LTP1 period.  These documents detail the progress made towards achieving the Local Transport Plan's objectives and targets, the measures introduced and the outcomes that have been attained each year.  The progress reported to the Department for Transport influences the level of funding made available to the council each year.

LTP1 ,LTP2 and LTP3 together with the annual monitoring reports on LTP2 can be viewed by clicking on the appropriate link to the left.  

Because the LTP is a strategic document and therefore does not contain all the Council's policies that relate to highways and transport, we have prepared a compendium of the Council's transport policies which you can access from this page. We have put this compendium together to give a greater depth of information about the Council's approach to particular highways and transport issues than is available from the LTP alone. From time to time the Council reviews particular policy areas and news about these reviews will be published here.

Please note that some of the PDF files for download are quite large and make take some time, depending on your Internet connection speed.  Hard copies and alternative formats of the current documents are available on request.
