'A resilient transport network that enables sustainable economic growth by providing door to door travel choices'
Gloucestershire County Council, as the local transport authority, has a statutory requirement under the Transport Act 2000, as amended by the Local Transport Act 2008, to have a Local Transport Plan.
The Local Transport Plan (LTP) sets the long‐term transport strategy for Gloucestershire up to 2031. It aims to influence how and when people choose to travel so that individual travel decisions do not cumulatively impact on the desirability of Gloucestershire as a place to live, work and invest.
Gloucestershire's LTP has been updated to support delivery of the Strategic Economic Plan, the emerging Local Plans and, where possible, maximise the opportunity for further levels of investment as they become available for transport within the county. It also enhances the ability of County Council officers to successfully negotiate with developers to secure infrastructure associated with emerging developments.
For more information and details on how the policies and scheme priorities included within Gloucestershire's Local Transport Plan (LTP) should be used and interpreted please refer to the LTP Guidance Note
