Transport policy and supporting strategies

Sitting alongside the Local Transport Plan is:

  • The Implementation plan – the work we intended to be carried out during the first 2 years (2011/12 and 2012/13). and an indication of the major schemes that may be delivered over the full 20 year plan period.
  • Transport policy document – sets out our main transport policies.


Additionally, we've created a strategy for each specific area of transport planning, which support the main Local Transport Plan document:

Active travel strategy

Road safety strategy

The road safety strategy seeks to promote a safer and greener highway in order to reduce and prevent road casualties.

Rural transport strategy

The rural transport strategy aims to ensure that transport services in rural areas enable people to access important destinations and services. It also seeks to encourage residents to travel by methods other than car.

Speed management strategy

The speed management strategy was reviewed following government guidelines (PDF 212kb) Opening a new window released in 2013. The strategy was developed with the help of the county's constabulary. It introduces zonal rural speed limits and increases the number of roads that could have 20mph speed limits.
