Local Transport Plan
Full Local Transport Plan 2011
The council’s third Local Transport Plan [LTP3] was agreed in May 2011 and will run for the next 3 years.
It sets out how important transport is to the success of Brighton & Hove as place that people want to live, work, visit and enjoy. It demonstrates the contribution that transport can make towards achieving five main goals that are :-
- Supporting economic growth
- Reducing carbon emissions
- Promoting equality of opportunity
- Contributing to better safety, security and health
- Improving quality of life.
The LTP3 is the council’s main source of funding for transport and enables a range of different schemes and projects to be delivered. These include maintaining roads, pavements and street lights; increasing the range of transport choices for everybody; and using innovation and technology to reduce congestion and improve air quality, and therefore residents’ health.
It includes a long-term Strategy for delivering transport improvements that looks ahead to 2026, and a 3-year Delivery Plan that outlines how the funding will be spent. This is based on three themes that are :-
• maintain our transport infrastructure in a good and safe condition;
• manage the movement of people, vehicles and goods to make it easier for everybody to get around; and
• improve the transport network in many different ways to achieve a number of benefits.
The delivery of schemes will be based on 5 broad principles, known as the 5 I’s :-
• being innovative and creative;
• providing and using accurate/robust information;
• involving partners, stakeholders and communities;
• ensuring integration and co-ordination; and
• securing additional investment.
