Local Transport Plan
Our Local Transport Plan (LTP) sets out the role of highways and transport in enabling the delivery of our over-arching economic, social and environmental goals within North East Lincolnshire in addition to meeting our statutory duties as a highway authority.
The updated plan (published in December 2016) includes a long-term Transport Strategy, a three year Delivery Plan (incorporating the annual LTP Capital Programme) and supporting strategies that bridge the gap between the two.
The LTP is closely aligned to the Council’s Economic Strategy, Town Centre Investment Plans and emerging Local Plan highlighting the important role that highways and transport have in supporting the Council’s aspirations for a stronger economy and stronger local communities here in North East Lincolnshire.
The LTP is not a bidding document and the amount of funding made available to the Council for local highway and transport improvement projects is not directly based on the contents of the plan but it does form the basis through which bids for additional external funding are developed.
Our Highway Strategy has been created to form a medium-to-long term transport planning platform to support local growth & economic development and in doing so improving existing conditions on our local highway network.
The Highway Strategy supports the delivery of the wider Local Transport Plan. It provides a mechanism through which the need for improvements to the local highway network are identified and prioritised using a framework incorporating economy and growth, environmental, access and wellbeing and scheme acceptability & risk criteria.
The Highway Strategy does not identify appropriate solutions for the locations where the evidence suggests improvements are in required. These solutions will be developed on a site-by-site basis moving forward.
