Gloucestershire LTP’s role in the planning process

What is the LTP’s role in the planning process?

The LTP is a material consideration when a Local Planning Authority determines a planning application. The LTP should be consulted during:

  • Pre‐app discussions with developers
  • The master planning of development sites
  • The production and assessment of Transport Assessments or Transport Statements
  • The production of transport evidence supporting a Local Plan or Neighbourhood Development Plan
  • The Plan Making Process outlines the Gloucestershire LTP’s role
  • The reviewing public transport contracts or responding to franchise consultations
  • Applying for funding bids
  • Providing consultation responses


The information contained within the LTP will provide an invaluable starting point for communities writing Local, Parish or Neighbourhood Development Plans.

The LTP is a living document which will be updated to reflect the adoption of these plans creating a reciprocal relationship strengthening transport delivery within Gloucestershire. The Plan Making Process Table outlines this process.
