A new draft Joint Local Transport Plan (JLTP4) has been prepared by the West of England Combined Authority and the four West of England local authorities – Bath & North East Somerset Council, Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council, and South Gloucestershire Council.
JLTP4 sets out the vision for transport investment in the West of England and the policy framework within which the West of England authorities will work. The new JLTP builds on the two previous plans, 2006 to 2011 and 2011 to 2026 and the Joint Transport Study, October 2017. It will cover the period from 2019 to 2036.
Overall the draft JLTP4’s vison for transport is:
‘Connecting people and places for a vibrant and inclusive West of England’
The JLTP aims to:
- Support sustainable economic growth
- Enable quality public services and improve accessibility
- Address poor air quality and take action against climate change
- Contribute to better health and wellbeing, safety and security
- Create better places
Consultation is now closed on the Draft Joint Local Transport Plan 4.
Thank you to everyone who has submitted feedback on the draft plan. Your responses to the priority tool and questionnaire will be considered in the development of the final version of the plan, which will be launched later in 2019.
Whilst the consultation is now closed the full version of the JLTP4 and its associated Summary Report can still be accessed via the Travelwest website at www.travelwest.info/JLTP.
