Overarching strategy

Welcome to the Local Transport Plan (LTP) for Gloucestershire which covers the period 2015 - 2031.

This page sets the scene for transport across the county and the Local Transport Plan's overarching objectives to:

  • Support sustainable economic growth
  • Enable community connectivity
  • Conserve the environment
  • Improve community health and wellbeing

Transport is an enabler and a driver of change, it must be able to respond to future pressures as the national economy grows and modernises, so that Gloucestershire is always a place to do business and attract investment. Expected outcomes include:

  • Network resilience
  • Improved journey time reliability
  • Thriving economy
  • Financial stability
  • Reduced isolation
  • Active travel

This LTP is structured around a transport picture of Gloucestershire based on a geographical patchwork of travel corridors, each of which has distinctive transport opportunities and pressures. This is addressed through six area Connecting Places Strategies (CPS).

This LTP sets out the issues and priorities for the county. It identifies the approach to managing the increased transport demand which will go hand in hand with projected housing development and accelerated economic growth.The provision of reliable door to door transport choice will be key to securing the county's economic resilience, while the promotion and use of alternatives to solo car use will help achieve per capita reduction in carbon emissions.

The LTP sets the long term strategy for transport within the county and the county council will actively seek funding to deliver Gloucestershire's future.
