Assessments and reports
Strategic environmental assessment
By law, we must undertake a strategic environmental assessment (SEA) when developing or revising a local transport plan. This involves assessing the different environmental, social and economic impacts.
As part of the process, we are required to:
- Produce a scoping study
- Undertake consultation
- Publish a final environmental report and an environmental statement.
Strategy consultations can be found under their individual documents in Supporting strategies, and reports are detailed blow:
The LTP3 SEA environmental report
This report details how the recommendations from the assessments and consultations have influenced the development of the plan.
Reports and Assessments
The LTP3 SEA Scoping Report
- Identify relevant legislation, government guidance and other plans and programmes that could help to develop LTP3.
- Establish a set of criteria to measure the plan against.
- Collect baseline data to determine the range of environmental pressures than could affect the plan.
- Identify alternative options to deal with transport issues.
Scoping report and consultation report
Equality impact assessment (EqIA)
An EqIA determines how the delivery of the local transport plan will affect different groups of people, encompassing race, gender, disability, age, religion/belief and sexual orientation.
Habitats regulations assessment (HRA)
An HRA of LTP3 has been conducted to assess the likely impacts of the LTP on the integrity of nature protection areas (Natura 2000 sites).
Traffic and transport data reports (TTDR)

Air quality protocol
We developed an air quality protocol because of the growing number of air quality management areas (AQMAs) declared on Hertfordshire's roads.
This protocol explains how we will work with district/borough councils to capture the data they require for air quality modelling. It also details support we can offer regarding AQMAs and the production of joint action plans.
The first annual progress report for our local transport plan (LTP3) details the delivery of the first year, covering the financial year 2011/12.
The second annual progress report details the delivery of the second year of the local transport plan, covering the financial year 2012/13.
