Partnership members respond to Joint Local Transport Plan
29th March 2019
Several Partnership members took part in the consultation on the Joint Local Transport Plan (JLTP) which ran from 6 February through to 20 March 2019.
The JLTP is being led by the West of England Combined Authority, working with Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire councils. It sets out the approach to the way transport will develop up to 2036 in the West of England.
The JLTP aims to:
- Support sustainable economic growth
- Enable quality public services and improve accessibility
- Address poor air quality and take action against climate change
- Contribute to better health and wellbeing, safety and security
- Create better places
Partnership members encouraged members to respond to this consultation and a number did so, and we share their responses below. This includes a joint response from the Sustainable Transport Network, a group of Partnership member organisations that advocate for sustainable transport in Bristol and the wider region. If your member organisation also responded to the consultation and would be happy for us to publish it here, do let us know.
- Bristol Walking Alliance
- Business West
- Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways
- North Bristol SusCom
- Sustainable Transport Network
- The Ramblers’ Avon Area
We will keep members information of any news and updates about the JLTP and other transport policies and plans relevant to Bristol and the surrounding region. A consultation on revisions to the local plan for Bristol is currently open until 24 May 2019.
