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 2020 to 2036.
Overall the draft JLTP4’s vison for transport is:
‘Connecting people and places for a vibrant, inclusive and carbon neutral West of England’
The JLTP aims to:
- Support sustainable and inclusive economic growth
- Enable equality and improve accessibility
- Take action against climate change and address poor air quality
- Contribute to better health, wellbeing, safety and security
- Create better places
