We need to create a more inclusive, sustainable and liveable city where everyone can move around more healthily, safely, and easily. 

Local Transport Plan (LTP5) 

Our LTP5 will set our vision and priorities for transport and travel across the city to 2030 and what we need to do to deliver them.  

The LTP5 ‘direction of travel’ consultation document was prepared to support public consultation held in autumn 2021. 

A series of recommendations to amend the plan’s key principals, priority areas and interventions was approved by members of the Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee in March 2022. 

A draft LTP5 will be prepared in line with the new guidance and toolkit, to include a high level delivery programme and headline targets. This will be subject to a formal public consultation planned for summer/autumn 2022, with approval of the final LTP5 expected in winter 2022 to 2023.

Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) 

The Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) considers the city’s walking and cycling infrastructure over the next 10 years. 

Information was gathered from the Census, local traffic counts, results from consultations, Road Traffic Collision data and area studies to put together the plan. 

It identifies routes and areas in the city where there is the greatest potential for helping residents access other means of transport, supporting and increasing levels of active travel.

It also considers broadly where improvements could be made but doesn’t include detail. This comes later, along with further consultation.

The plan opens up the potential for future funding opportunities and has a cross party member working group that can scrutinise any further plans.

The LCWIP was approved by members of the Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee in March 2022.
