CLA South West Regional News - Wiltshire Local Transport Plan 2011 - 2026
Wiltshire council is consulting on a new Local Transport Plan for publication by the end of March 2011. Producing a new LTP is a statutory requirement.
The Wiltshire LTP 2011 - 2026 is made up of
1) A long-term transport strategy that seeks to:
· support economic growth;
· reduce carbon emissions;
· contribute to better safety, security and health;
· promote equality of opportunity; and
· improve quality of life and promote a healthy natural environment.
2) A shorter-term implementation plan based on a realistic assessment of available funding.
3) A number of supporting strategies and technical documents.
In addition, the LTP provides the framework for all other organisations with a direct or indirect involvement in transport in Wiltshire.
We would welcome your views on the draft Wiltshire Local Transport Plan 2011 - 2026 (LTP3). There are four specific questions in the executive summary of the main document. Other specific questions can be found in the executive summaries of the freight strategy, public transport strategy and road safety strategy, which are all attached as appendices. In addition or instead, you can make comments on any section of the draft LTP3.
A copy is available at http://consult.wiltshire.gov.uk/portal/ltp/ltp3
Paper copies of the summary document and a reference copy of the LTP will also be available from all libraries and main Council offices.
Alternatively, comments can be emailed to email@example.com or in writing to:
Sustainable Transport Group, Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Trowbridge, Wiltshire BA14 8JD.
The consultation period runs to 5pm on 26th November, 2010.
Please be aware that all responses will be publicly available and cannot be treated as confidential.
