Brighton & Hove City Council has invited comment on the Provisional Local Transport Plan. It is looking to involve local people and businesses in setting the agenda for the future.
The Provisional Plan is available to view at all local libraries, City Direct offices in Bartholomew Square, Brighton and Hove Town Hall, and can be downloaded from the website at http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/ltp
The Plan sets out the council’s vision for a successful transport system, which will build on the success of the first Local Transport Plan (2000/01 – 2005/06). It will be finalised in March, 2006.
In excess of £35 million has been secured since the government introduced Local Transport Plans in 1999/2000. The Local Transport Plan is now the main source of funding for major transport schemes in the city.
Transport use in Brighton & Hove has bucked national and regional trends in recent years as car use has reduced, while public transport patronage, walking and cycling has increased. This year the city council was named Local Transport Authority of the Year at the National Transport Awards in recognition of its achievements in delivering the city’s transport policies.
