The government’s 1998 White Paper on Transport, ‘A New Deal for Transport: Better for Everyone’, introduced the concept of Local Transport Plans (LTP) to steer the development of national transport policies at the local level. The Transport Act 2000 then made it a statutory requirement for local transport studies to produce LTPs.
The Wiltshire LTP sets out the council’s objectives, implementation plans and targets for transport in Wiltshire. Furthermore, as a document developed through partnership working and extensive consultation, the LTP also provides the framework for all other organisations with a direct or in direct involvement in transport in Wiltshire.
In July 2006 Wiltshire Council published its second Local Transport Period (LTP2) which covered the period 2006/07-2010/11. The main emphasis of this LTP was the four shared priorities of:
- Tackling congestion
- Better air quality
- Delivering accessibility
- Safer roads
Accessibility planning became a particularly important theme of this LTP, especially for predominantly rural counties such as Wiltshire.
