Consultation on draft Local Transport Plan (LTP4)

Closes 20 Nov 2022

Opened 24 Sep 2022

Overview

 

 

Warwickshire County Council is in the process of updating the current Local Transport Plan (LTP), which is a document that sets out the transport needs, challenges, objectives and priorities for the County.  

An LTP sets out policies to shape future transport schemes and developments within the County. It allows us, as the County Council, to target resources to deliver a transport network that gives people who live and work in Warwickshire access to the facilities they need to go about their daily lives, along with those who visit the area.

Our current local transport plan (LTP3) was intended to run from 2011 to 2026, but we want to update it. Major changes to the way we move, work, shop and carry out leisure activities mean we will have to adapt and change if we are to provide a modern transport system for Warwickshire. 

Significant global developments also affect Warwickshire and we need to acknowledge and respond to transport challenges brought about by climate change, lifestyle changes as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and emerging new transport technologies. 

Previously we have consulted on the direction that our new Plan (LTP4) should take. You told us that the four key themes we identified in September 2021 were the right ones, and that these should underpin all that we do in our new Plan. The four themes were Environment, Well-being, Economy and Place

The draft LTP4

We have a proposed Core Strategy which shows how the four key themes link into the wider aims of Warwickshire County Council taken from our Council Plan. These aims are: 

  • Thriving Economy and Places – the right jobs, training, future skills, education, infrastructure and places  
  • Best Lives - communities and individuals supported to live safely, healthily, happily and independently  
  • Sustainable Futures - adapting to and mitigating climate change and meeting Net Zero commitments   

We have six proposed Key Strategies that together make up LTP4. The key strategies are:

  1. Active Travel: a strategy to promote walking and cycling in Warwickshire to bring the physical and mental health benefits from these forms of transport to more people and protect the environment.
  2. Public Transport: how we intend to work with bus and rail companies to improve the existing public transport network in Warwickshire.
  3. Motor Vehicles: recognising the role of motor vehicles in the county as we move towards more sustainable transport options such as electric vehicles and hydrogen-fueled transport.
  4. Managing Space: making changes to public spaces to make them more attractive places to be, cleaner and less dominated by vehicles, with the routes that connect them less congested.
  5. Safer Travel: reducing the number of people injured on Warwickshire’s roads and increasing the safety and attractiveness of all travel options.
  6. Freight Strategy: managing freight movements across the county to promote and grow our successful economy.

We are asking for your views and feedback on the proposed core strategy and the six proposed key strategies. 

We have provided links and supporting documents at the bottom of this page to help you consider your response. Copies of the strategies are also provided for reference in the survey itself.
