The Local Transport Plan process is the key mechanism through which Shropshire Council can strategically plan for what highways, transport and mobility will look like in the future.
Transport has a significant role to play in place-making, supporting the economy of Shropshire and ensuring that everyone can have access to their daily needs and activities. The Local Transport Plan typically covers all aspects of transport and highways, including active travel, public transport, car-based travel, freight, and the management and maintenance of highways. It also has strategic linkages to wider agendas such as economic growth, the environment and health.
Development of the plan is behind schedule. Work on developing Shropshire Council’s fourth Local Transport Plan recommenced in October 2020 and an overview of the proposed approach and programme is due to be reviewed by the Place Scrutiny Committee shortly.
