A GOOD PRACTICE GUIDE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LOCAL TRANSPORT PLANS

The introduction of five-year local transport plans (LTPs) was announced in the white paper A New Deal for Transport: Better for Everyone, published in July 1998 (see IRRD 491254). The white paper proposes wide-ranging, radical action over the coming years. LTPs will bring the proposals together at the local level - they are the essential building blocks of the integrated transport policy. The Transport Bill currently before Parliament will put LTPs on a statutory footing. LTPs give local authorities the opportunity to produce comprehensive integrated transport strategies covering all forms of surface transport. LTPs have replaced the transport policies and programme (TPP) system as the basis for allocating resources for local transport capital expenditure. The new system gives local authorities greater discretion on spending and more certainty over future funding levels. Local authorities submitted provisional LTPs last July and will submit full LTPs in July 2000. This guide highlights examples of good practice from provisional LTPs so that authorities can learn from each other. It does not replace the Department's guidance for local authorities on preparing LTPs, but should be read in conjunction with it. (A)
