Local Transport Plan

Local Transport Plan 4 (LTP4)

The new Local Transport Plan 4 document was approved by the city council in March 2015. It is the fourth Local Transport Plan and is therefore referred to as LTP4.

It sets out priorities, projects and programmes that need to be progressed in the future to help people move around the city more safely, sustainably, and easily.

The three main ways in which the council will help keep the city moving are by:

  • Maintaining and renewing the transport network and its infrastructure to increase resilience.
  • Managing movement on the transport network, changing travel behaviour and informing people’s travel choices in dynamic ways to increase efficiency and sustainability.
  • Improving sustainable and accessible transport infrastructure, connections, information and options to link people with places and communities, and provide a safer and more attractive environment.

The plan includes a long-term strategy for delivering transport improvements that looks ahead to 2030; and a short-term Delivery Plan focussed on the next four years (2015/16 – 2018/19) which is primarily based on the £20.3 million worth of capital funding that will be provided by the government during this period.

How has the plan been developed?

The plan has been developed based on existing knowledge and information; approved plans and strategies; and evidence and data from within Brighton & Hove and the wider Greater Brighton City Region area.

Consultation and engagement with established partnerships and stakeholders helped to shape the plan and identify priorities, projects and programmes that need to be progressed for the future to help people move around the city more safely, sustainably, and easily.  

Why has the plan been developed?

The government introduced the requirement for councils to have a Local Transport Plan in 2000.

Local Transport Plan 3 (LTP3)

The third Local Transport Plan (LTP3) was agreed in May 2011. It has now been replaced by the fourth Local Transport Plan.
