This circular, issued to local authorities and passenger transport executives (PTE's) in England, describes the arrangements for tpp submissions for transport supplementary grant (tsg) for 1979/80. It supplements the earlier circulars on the tpp/tsg system and supersedes the advice on expenditure levels and programme priorities given in circular dtp 1/77. An index to those parts of the earlier circulars that are still current is at annex F. Reference is made to the white paper on transport policy (cmnd 6836) and the revised expenditure ceilings envisaged for local transport. The circular deals mainly with the policy and financial implications of the white paper with regard to bus and underground operations, local rail services, public transport plans, local roads and traffic management, car parking, road safety and highway maintenance. The attention of local authorites is drawn to the advantages of promoting direct rail access for industrial development, and the government's policy with regard to inner urban areas, and new and expanding towns. The final section covers expenditure generally.
