The report was prepared by a working party set up to give guidance on the new system of transport policies and programmes (tpp) which the county councils are required to submit to central government. A survey of 1975/76 tpp submissions was made, and the different weighting given to the main components by councils in urban and in rural areas is illustrated. The effects of public policy on individual transportation requirements are described. Against a historical background the objectives of the new approach are outlined and advice on the preparation of tpp submissions is given. A carefully arranged timetable, use of financial guidelines and monitoring of progress are recommended. The establishment of relationships between county councils and other bodies is discussed. Constructive criticisms of the tpp concept and the transport supplementary grant (tsg) system are made. The opinion of the working party is that the tpp concept is sound and contributes usefully to forward financial and policy planning but no conclusion can be reached as to whether tsg is an effective grant. /TRRL/
